How much more can you take? With the theatrical version of Lars von Trier‘s two part epic “Nymphomaniac” already sprawling over four hours, there’s still his director’s cut to contend with. The first volume of his uncensored vision debuted earlier this year at the Berlin Film Festival (our review), and now volume two heads to Venice and a new image and hilarious poster have arrived.
You already know that Charlotte Gainsbourg leads the star-studded dramatic journey through one woman’s erotic life, but what you might not know is that Venice is actually screening both Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 director’s cuts for a combined running time of 5 1/2 hours. Dang. Here’s the 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.
No word yet on when the director’s cuts will make their way stateside, so for now, let this amazing one sheet hold you over.
