Nymphomaniac: Vol. 1

Forget About Love


Nymphomaniac: Vol. 1
A young woman, who self-diagnoses herself as a nymphomaniac, is discovered badly beaten in an alley by an older bachelor. He takes her into his home. As he tends to her wounds, she recounts the erotic story of her adolescence and young-adulthood. The prudish should give this a skip, as it features a lot of flesh, sex and violence, even though South Africa appears to be showing the cut version.

120 minutes.
No persons under 18 (Language, Sex, Nudity, Violence).
