Sorry the truth hurts again.This movie disappointed me very much in its end and by being ambiguous with flashbacks and uninteresting long dialogue.It has pornographic sex,but can't be described as porno. Perhaps Lars Van Trier finds that some porno serves his plot.Naked people,penises and vaginas are in this adult movie.My point of view is that even if they put too much porno sex in Nymphomaniac Volume I & Volume II,the plot,the scenario, the direction and the way the movie is made is too ambiguous.The scenes are not related to each other and you will sure get lost when you see these 2 movies.There is no purpose in making these 2 movies except to stimulate your sexual instincts.
