The truth hurts: Nymphomaniac is too awful to watch!.
12 April 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Lars Von Trier is a famous controversial Danish Director.Actually I have never ever heard of him before!.I was really interested to see this movie as Lars Von Trier has been boasting of his works and regards himself as a great director.His movie Nymphomaniac Volume I has let me down.I felt sorry to see how a girl turned from innocence to c**k addiction.Although the explicit sex scenes are hot,yet the movie is generally too boring and a waste of time. The best part of this movie is the brief acting of Uma Thurman. All my enthusiasm to see this movie was completely lost as I watched this movie.I have realized that this film or his producer and director (Lars Von Trier) is making fun of us. I tried to find drama and suspense in it,but against all odds the movie sounded more like a travesty.
