NYMPHOMANIAC VOLUME 1 movie review:
Directed from the mind of the very twisted Lars Von Trier, NYMPHOMANIAC VOLUME 1 tells the story of a woman named Joe (Charlotte Gainsbourg's character), found beaten in an alleway, and a man named Seligman takes her home to aid her, and there she tells him the story of her libidinous life, and everything that led to her ending up beaten in an alleyway.
Charlotte Gainsbourg and Stacy Martin do a phenomenal job in this movie as the character Joe in different stages of her life, Stacy playing her from the age of 15-31 while Charlotte 35-50. Both of these actresses in the film are told to do various scenes of nudity and graphic sex, other mature things, and the two pull it off very well. Many who have seen the film say their scenes of sex are just borderline pornographic, but I disagree with that because while something like porn is meant for arousing purposes, all the sexual scenes in VOLUME 1 are shown to reveal the sexual nature of people, and how Von Trier tackles that is very fascinating; the way Von Trier shows sexual addiction, it's not erotic at all; instead he shows you the dark side of this addiction-- how young Joe gets attached to it, and too much of it starts to take her life to a downfall, and I think this really feels like a realistic portrayal of what someone with an addiction like this could go through, its depiction in this film is very similar to drug addiction, how the first couple times it feels fun, and gives pleasure, but after a while a change occurs, and you start discovering and realizing the darker sides of it and realize there's really no way out. Throughout the entire film most of the sex scenes never feel like there is any enjoyment the characters are getting out of it, instead you just see their unsatisfaction as they get used to it.
