Five and a Half-Hour 'Nymphomaniac' Director's Cut Arrives This Fall

September 16, 2014


Director Lars von Trier had his explicit and sexual new film Nymphomaniac released in two parts earlier this year (Volume I and Volume II are both available on Netflix right now). And while both films come together for a four-hour story, that's not all von Trier has to show but of course. In fact, a five and a half-hour director's cut of the film screened at Berlin and Venice film festivals this year and will also screen at Fantastic Fest later this month. And now we have word that this extended, unsplit version of the film will arrive on VOD + in limited theaters October 2nd. If you need more nymphomania, here you go.

Here's an extremely NSFW, brief preview of the Nymphomanic Director's Cut (via The Film Stage):

Here's the hilarious new poster tweeted out by @MagnoliaPics promoting the release of this director's cut:

In addition to the VOD and limited theatrical release, the director's cut of Nymphomaniac will also play "special festival events" in North American and countries in Europe, including Denmark (where von Trier hails from), Spain, the Netherlands, Poland, the Czech Republic. So if you live in any of those areas, make sure you keep an eye out to see when and where you might be able to catch this director's cut. Considering how explicit the two-volume release of Nymphomaniac was, this director's cut with an hour and a half added to the film must have quite a bit more (as you can see above). Anyone up for this director's cut?

    Groan.....and not in a sexual way....
  • 5 and a half hours????????
  • I tried watching it. Got halfway through part one. It wasn't just a "not my cup of tea" problem. The film felt flat, tired, and didn't raise enough interest in the character's problem.

      If I remember right, the director was really unhappy with the version that released before.

      Haha... "raising interest"

    It's just going for shock value at this point. I watched all of part 1 and 2 on netflix and could not have cared less about any of the characters. I know what they were trying to do with these films, but adding and hour and half to the cut isn't going to save it.

      Seems to be a running theme. Those who liked it, loved it (though they seem to be in the slight minority), and everyone else along the scale dislike the same aspects; pacing, lack of empathy/investment in main character and her "plight". And like you said, surely adding another 90 mins won't help..

    I loved the censored version, especially vol 1, I'm definitely purchasing this!

    Is that Shia's labeouf? And you weren't kidding with the 'extremely NSFW'... Shit, I just got fired.

    Can't wait to see this at the Bergen International Film Festival. Watching the reactions of old people, and shit.
