8.2 / 10 (1871)


In an alley near his home, ageing bachelor Seligman finds an unconscious woman covered in blood. Her name is Joe and she is a self-diagnosed nymphomaniac. While recovering in the kind stranger’s apartment, Joe begins to recount a history of her sexual life from her childhood to young adulthood.

MUBI's take

Perhaps the most epic of Lars von Trier’s many provocations, this stylistically strange, sprawling and yes, substantial, character study comprehensively approaches the subjects of love and sex and everything in between. A fascinating, daring drama—featuring Stacy Martin in her first film role.
