Come molti altri film di Lars von Trier anche “Nymphomaniac” è stato diviso dal regista in capitoli. I titoli dei capitoli ci danno un assaggio del dramma erotico recitato dai bravissimi attori, tra cui figuranno anche molte star del cinema hollywoodiano: Uma Thurman, Christian Slater, Willem Dafoe, Shia LaBeouf e Jamie Bell.
Ecco i capitoli di “Nymphomaniac”:
The complete anger
How does an ordinary bag of chocolate sweets become a symbol of sexual victory?
As Joe and her experienced friend B embark on a train trip, they bet on how many men they can seduce on the ride.
The grand prize is a delicious bag of chocolate sweets, and it soon becomes clear to Joe that in order to win, she needs to lure the prey into biting the hook like a skilled fisherman.
“Love is just lust with jealousy added”
Though love is a shallow feeling in the eyes of the cynical nymphomaniac, young Joe is met by forces penetrating her armoured defences.
His name is Jerôme.
Keeping track of a large network of lovers isn’t always easy, and Joe is soon confronted with the unpleasant consequences of being a nymphomaniac.
After all, you can’t make an omelet without breaking a few eggs.
Confusion. Delusion. Hallucination.
The nymphomaniac’s father dies.
The Little Organ School
A corale prelude by Bach.
Three voices each with its own character, but in complete harmony.
In other words: POLYPHONY.
The nymphomaniac is easily inspired,
and acts it out.
The Eastern & Western Church (The silent duck)
