An uncut version of Volume One will screen out of competition at the upcoming film festival. A two-part, four-hour version opened in von Trier's native Denmark last month on Christmas Day.
"Nymphomaniac" tells the story of a self-diagnosed nymphomaniac who recounts her erotic experiences to the man who saved her after a beating.
The film stars Charlotte Gainsbourg with a supporting cast that includes Stellan Skarsgård, Stacy Martin, Shia LaBeouf, Christian Slater, Jamie Bell, Uma Thurman, Willem Dafoe, Mia Goth, Sophie Kennedy Clark, Connie Nielsen, Michaël Pas, Jean-Marc Barr, and Udo Kier.
Here's the full synopsis:
Nymphomaniac is the wild and poetic story of a woman’s journey from birth to the age of 50 as told by the main character, the self-diagnosed nymphomaniac, Joe (Charlotte Gainsbourg). On a cold winter’s evening the old, 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 eight chapters recounts the lushy branched-out and multifaceted story of her life, rich in associations and interjecting incidents.
Magnolia will release "Nymphomaniac" in the U.S. as two parts with Volume One arriving On Demand and via iTunes March 6, followed by a theatrical release on March 21. Volume Two will premiere On Demand and iTunes March 20 and in Theaters on April 4.
