Storyline

Elizabeth, a neurotic stubborn woman in her thirties, likes to suppress her problems with exuberant sex. She has a pre-teen daughter, Liza from her first husband, Stefan but divorced a long time ago and now lives with her new husband, Georg. In order to get her life in order, she regularly visits her therapist, Drescher with whom she also talks about her tragic past. Once she had three brothers, but all died in a traffic accident. An event that will, of course, accompany her throughout her life and with which she tries to deal as well as possible. But her role as a mother and wife also plays an important role in the sessions, because she is obsessed with always doing the right thing and helping her environment.

I haven't read the books, but this is based on a novel by Charlotte Roche. I did watch the first movie they did of her first book (Feuchtgebiete), this is her second book. The first one was extremely crass/gross/sick, you take your pick. But after the release of Nymphomaniac you wonder if there is a pattern there and maybe there is.

This one btw. is not as extreme as the first one. It still has some scenes that will feel uncomfortable (STDs and such) though it's not as graphic as the other movies were that I mentioned above. It won't be everyones cup of tea, but the drama unfolding is pretty nicely told. Jürgen Vogel plays it as straight as possible, but it's the main character/woman who's carrying the load and she did a pretty solid job with that. If you don't mind the sexuality the movie has, you might enjoy it (though do not expect titillating)
