Nymphomaniac: Volumes 1 & 2

  • Lars von Trier
  • In English

This event is now SOLD OUT.

Tickets are now on sale for Volume 1 and Volume 2, screening separately from Fri 28 Feb.

Nymphomaniac is the highly anticipated new film from the legendary and controversial director Lars von Trier. Operatic in emotional scope and novelistic in structure, it is a sexually-charged odyssey told in double bill format across two volumes. It tells the wild and poetic story of a woman’s journey from birth to the age of 50, as told by the main character, self-diagnosed nymphomaniac Joe (Charlotte Gainsbourg). On a cold winter’s evening, charming bachelor Seligman (Stellan Skarsgård) finds Joe beaten up in an alley. He brings her home to his flat where he cares for her wounds while asking her about her life. He listens intently as Joe, over the next 8 chapters, recounts the lusty branched-out and multifaceted story of her life, rich in associations and interjecting incidents.


This special screening of Nymphomaniac will be broadcast live from Curzon Chelsea, where cast members Stellan Skarsgård, Stacey Martin and Sophie Kennedy-Clark will introduce the films and take part in a live post-screening interview.

Lars von Trier's two-part psychosexual epic makes for invigorating, profound and occasionally baffling viewing. 4/5

Little White Lies

Lars Von Trier's sex epic is a four-hour cold shower, yet it ravishes the brain and leaves you begging for more. 4/5

The Guardian

Chaotic and not especially pretty, it has more of the punkish, radical spirit of The Idiots or Dogville than the gloss or contained drama of Antichrist. 4/5

Time Out

You could watch these films for four hours, then spend 14 arguing about them – about whether sex, for vor Trier, is an eternal human mystery, or a cosmic joke at our expense. 4/5
