Past 2 days I been watching the infamous movie Nymphomaniac, but I didn’t know they made Vol 1 & 2. So when I saw this movie at Netflix. I always wanted to see this movie so I took the chance and both volumes are long so I took 2 evenings to see it.
Most people would say that this movie is ALL about sex, but that isn’t true at all. It’s about this girl named Joe and her life with her addiction to sex. But she describes it as lust and she’s proud of it. Movie shows all the ups and downs of a nymphomaniac.
The movie begins when the Joe is laying in a ally and a man, Seligman, played by Stellan Skarsgard, finds her laying there. He helps her to his place so she can warm up in a bed and with warm tea. He asks her how she got there and what happened. For her to tell the entire story correctly she starts with her childhood and talking about her friend and all the things she came up with they sh0uld do.
During her story telling he comes with stories and analogies. Helps her come up with chapter names for her life. During the movie Joe keeps reminding Seligman that she doesn’t have any emotions or intentions for a relationship. It doesn’t belong in her nature.
Sure, during the movie – you get to see ALOT of naked people having sex. You see breast and genitalia. But I wouldn’t say it’s porn. It’s more a story. A very good story. You get to see her journey in life – how she ended up where she was found in the alley. Her first lover and how she met him later in life. You also get to see her close relationship to her father and how that shapes her – played by Christian Slater.
OFF TOPIC INFO: Did you know that Stellan Skarsgards oldest son is Alexander Skarsgard, playing Eric Northman in True Blood. Also he got a son in Hemlock Grove playing Roman Godfrey. 3 handsome Skarsgards in Hollywood, aren’t they lucky!? :P
