Nymphomaniac: Vol. I (2013) Poster

Charlotte Gainsbourg: Joe



  • Joe : Perhaps the only difference between me and other people was that I've always demanded more from the sunset; more spectacular colors when the sun hit the horizon. That's perhaps my only sin.

  • Seligman : Love is blind.

    Joe : No, no, no. It's worse. Love distort things. Or even worse, love is something you never asked for. The erotic was something that I ask for or even demanded of men. But this idiotic love... I felt humiliated by it. And all the dishonesty that follows.

    Joe : The erotic is about saying yes. Love appeals to lowest instincts, wrapped up in lies. How do you say yes when you mean no? And vice-versa. I'm ashamed of what I became. But it was beyond my control.

  • Joe : For me, love was just lust with jealousy added; everything else was total nonsense. For every hundred crimes committed in the name of love, only one is committed in the name of sex.

  • Joe : It's actually the souls of the trees we're seeing in the winter. In summer everything is green and idyllic but in the winter, the branches and the trunks all stand out. Just look at how crooked they all are. The branches have to carry all the leaves to the sunlight. That's one long struggle for survival.

  • Joe : They said that love was the secret ingredient in sex, but, to me, love was just lust, with jealousy added.

  • Seligman : I'm Seligman.

    Joe : What a fucking ridiculous name.

  • Joe : Basically, we're all waiting for permission to die.

  • Joe : It's my own fault. I'm just a bad human being.

    Seligman : I've never met a "bad human being."

    Joe : Well, you have now.
