Uncut version of 'Nymphomaniac' will premiere at Berlin Film Festival

The director’s cut of Nymphomaniac will make its world debut at the Berlin Film Festival, it was announced on Friday. Lars von Trier’s film about a woman’s (Charlotte Gainsbourg) journey toward sexual enlightenment has already garnered controversy over its graphic sex scenes and need for body doubles.

“Berlinale audiences will be the first to see the long uncut version of Nymphomaniac Volume I,” said¬†Berlinale director Dieter Kosslick in a statement. “Lars von Trier, a guest of the Berlinale for the first time in 1984, returns to the festival with this film. The aesthetic he has created in Nymphomaniac is impressive and radical.”

This uncut version, Nymphomaniac Volume 1, will screen out of competition at the festival, which begins Feb. 6. The shorter version of Nymphomaniac will premiere in Denmark and select other European territories on Christmas.

It was announced earlier in December that the two-part versions of the film would open in the U.S. (and on VOD) in March and April.

Stellan Skarsgard, Shia LaBeouf, Willem Dafoe  also appear in the film.
