'Nymphomaniac' Will Screen Uncut Version at Berlin Film Festival

Lars von Trier's sex drama stars Shia LaBeouf and Jamie Bell

The Berlin Film Festival will debut the uncut version of the first installment in Lar von Trier's “Nymphomaniac.”

The grunting and grimacing epic stars Charlotte Gainsbourg, Jamie Bell, Uma Thurman and Shia Labeouf, and is hotly anticipated both because of von Trier's controversial status and because its scenes of coitus are expected to be envelop-pushing.

The film unfolds with a sex addict (Gainsbourg) recounts her between the sheets past to a charming bachelor who finds her beaten up in an alley. The film will screen out of competition.

“The aesthetic [von Trier] has created in ‘Nymphomaniac' is impressive and radical,” Berlinale director Dieter Kosslick said in a statement.

The original of “Nymphomaniac” was over five hours long, but has been whittled down in length and will be released in the United States in two parts. A shorter version will open in theaters beginning Dec. 25, 2013, making for a potentially awkward family excursion to the movies.

    A heart warming Christmas movie I'm sure.
    Actually I'm asking Santa to bring me a nymphomaniac for Christmas, if possible one who looks like Sharon Stone.

    Having sex with a stick..this is what is become acceptable behavior.

    • simonenglish1 .

      Who cares…a stick is better than most dirty dicks I guess…….anyway, there is sex and there is making love, two very different acts.

    Envelop-pushing? Really? “envelop”? Last time I heard someone say “envelop” was when I worked in a prison.

  • Bob

    “its scenes of coitus are expected to be envelop-pushing” … does that mean he was wearing a condom? lol

    Not many people are aware of the sad fate of ‘Nymphomaniac’ women. Unable to ahieve orgasm, all of the energy, all the yelling screming and scratching are “effects” and not related to anything they are feeling. i had an experience with one and it was awful. I just stopped in the middle , so did she and she thought that was the way it worked. So sad. . . Nympho girls can't really know what sex is about,(except making babies) because they don't really feel anything. Just like Muslim females who've had their nerves “cut” There's nothing remotly sexual about a nymph-they should call it numbphomania. . . .

    • Jacky

      Your point on muslim girls being not sexual is definitely not true. I come across girls who are sexually active and they love it. Its how they were brought up i guess, to be conservative and not open bout such topic

    She is kind of skinny but still hot.

    If you want to create jobs you need to make this a business friendly
    environment. How do you do this? You curtail Sarbanes Oxley, the EPA,
    Dodd/Frank, lower taxes, and cut out other job killing regulations. If you want
    businesses to create jobs, this is what you do. Why do think you businesses are
    going to hire in America when you are attacking them every day? Obama is
    assailing the private sector every day, Obama does not understand profits and
    he does not understand how businesses work. This is why 15 million black people
    are unemployed and they deserve to be because they continue to vote for tax and
    spend liberals.

    • Ben Dover

      Hey Benny boy – sell your shit somewhere else – we're all full of asshole here. Fuck off

      • Benjamin Roussey

        Sorry, I am a real American. Go back to Europe.

        • Benjamin Roussey

          You believed the Obama lying machine.
          You believed you could keep your doctor and your insurance plan. You believed
          you would have lower health care costs. You believed the website would be
          working and would work. These idiots cannot even set up a website! Hilarious!
          Just like the Germans did in the 1930s who believed an egotistical liar, you
          believed the Obama who continues to lie and earn a Pinocchio every week.

          • Benjamin Roussey

            With socialized medicine (Obamacare)
            there will be 30 million more people pouring into the system with the same
            amount of doctors. Your kids will die in the waiting room and I will laugh when
            it happens.

          • Benjamin Roussey

            The two Boston bombers
            received $100,000 in welfare benefits. The liberal Democrat governor in
            Massachusetts tried to keep this information secret but it has been recovered
            and now is being reported. Another indication how disgusting liberals are.

          • Benjamin Roussey

            It is called “personal
            responsibility”. We know liberals hate those two words when they are together
            because they do not want to take responsibility for their actions. It is not
            rich people’s fault you or your kids dropped out of high school. It is not rich
            people’s fault that they decided to study in high school and had the guts to
            start their own business and work at it until they had a winning product and/or
            service. It is not rich people’s fault that you chose to have a child out of wedlock
            and not listen to good advice when it was being handed to you. Most rich people
            were not born rich, they worked hard and did not spend all their spare time
            watching MTV or waiting for something to happen. They made it happen and they
            employ millions of Americans in jobs that matter. Your government job does not
            matter, most likely. And union members kill jobs but that is another story. It
            is about personal responsibility which liberals do not want to acknowledge
            because then they would have to realize their failure and stagnant professional
            is their fault and on one else’s.

            YOU BE HATIN’ MAN.

  • Benjamin Roussey

    Shia should be in T4 a little bit. Just a little bit.

  • Benjamin Roussey

    I woke up this morning
    and realized 10,000,000 black people are unemployed, 7,000,000 Mexicans, and
    4,000,000 young people out of college who mainly supported Obama and this is
    largely because of Obama's tax and spend agenda, Sarbanes Oxley, Dodd/Frank (do
    you even know what this is?), EPA, job killing regulations (see jobs migrate
    from California to Texas), high taxes, lack of tort reform which inflates
    medical costs, and so on – I laughed for about 2 minutes. Keep on being suckers
    people, the Democrats take your vote for granted. Hey, but at least gays can
    marry each other and woman can murder their own babies. Hooray, hooray….

    The last thing I want to see is Shia LaBeouf in the buff having sex – no matter how sexy the actress is.,,

  • xphile63

    I love my wife dearly and its true .. the secret to a great marriage is great sex =) I can attest to that. I feel bad for my buddies who are getting it once a month or week or less .. I know this goes both ways , but from a guys perspective .. a couple of my friends say the “Miss” are using sex as leverage, and it is causing them to consider looking elsewhere to get their needs met .. some already have!:( sad sad I dont condone a cheating husband or wife but i have never been in their shoes. Withholding sex leads to bitterness! SO have sex and be happy people!
