The story of Jo, a self-diagnosed nymphomaniac who is discovered badly beaten in an alley by an older bachelor, Seligman who takes her into his home. As he tends to her wounds, she recounts the erotic story of her adolescence and young-adulthood. This explicit drama is the latest from cinema’s master provocateur Lars von Trier.
“One of the strangest and least summarizable motion pictures ever made: tragic and hilarious, tightly constructed and miscellaneous.” Andrew O’Hehir, Salon.com
“Provocative, engrossing, often hilarious, frequently tough, but it’s among von Trier’s more playful, purely entertaining films, with insight and humour in even the horrors.” Kim Newman, Empire Magazine.
