YEREVAN, February 12. / ARKA /. Cinema Star movie theater in Yerevan has thought better of premiering February 13 the scandal-courting Danish director Lars von Trier’s new movie Nymphomaniac (volume1) because of public outcry.
The movie is starred by Charlotte Gainsbourg, Stellan Skarsgard, Christian Slater, Uma Thurman and newcomer Stacy Martin.
The film tells the story of Joe, played by Gainsbourg, and her sexual awakening from birth to age 50.
The picture opens with Joe lying beaten in an alleyway when the kindly intellectual Seligman (Skarsgard) comes upon her and takes her home with him. She begins confiding her life story, including how she lost her virginity in a degrading encounter with a man who will repeatedly surface in her life.
Grasping her “power as a woman’’ over men who want sex from her, Joe enters into a competition with a friend as to who can seduce the most strangers on a train within an hour, with extra points for conquering a devoted married man. -0-
