msmichel's rating of the film Nymphomaniac: Volume I

Von Trier attempts to confront the hypocrisy of society's views on the sexuality of women with very interesting results. Neither as controversial or as carnal as one has been led to believe, the film is actually a fascinating journey into storytelling, gender politic and sexuality. The idea of the 'unreliable narrator' is genius as are the editing in both story and film. Volume 1 however is the more interesting one.
