A bit late to the party, but only recently I got the chance to watch Nymphomaniac Volume I. Two words: cheap porn. I don’t understand why all the buzz around it. It was not provocative and it certainly was not tasteful. No character development, no tension, no hidden meaning. Just a girl describing her horniness to an old man.
The actors had literally nothing to work with so I am not going to waste time on performances.
On the other hand, Trier got to show the world his vast knowledge in physics and music with unrelated comments throughout the entire movie. Boring, boring, boring… I don’t even have the curiosity to watch Volume II.
I rate this movie with 2/10
You want to watch Trier? Try Melancholia instead.
