I watched both parts I + II in one day, mostly because it is hard not to watch both parts of a movie with only two parts, and partly because I wasn't wanting to watch the second part on another day because I wasn't really sure I wanted to watch the second part at all.
It begins with a man finding a beaten woman in an alley, that was very true. She does then tell him her story of nymphomania. At first it was an interesting movie to watch because it went into great detail about when and where she lost her virginity and how it was a downward spiral from there.
This movie didn't really have much to offer, even as an art piece. It was just too over the top and it didn't give insight often to the main character Jo. Jo, the nymphomaniac, is shown in varying situations having sex with whomever she can get to have sex with. This movie becomes an over the top exploitation of sex, and it provides a look into the mind of a nymphomaniac, however it only shows sex as the addiction, not the problem it really is. People should watch this movie and look at it as an unrealistic expectation of what sex addiction really is.
I thought this movie would be an interesting insight into the life of a woman suffering nymphomania, and the consequences of her actions. While there were consequences they didn't seem to affect her until the very end. Honestly she didn't seem to care about much. When a wife confronts her she doesn't even bat an eyelash, when things happen with her child and the child's father she doesn't stop nor does she seek help and stay with it, and in the end when she is beaten and left for dead she doesn't even care then.
This was not a movie for the faint of heart, especially since it was basically art house porn. A lot of sex and just a little bit of story. I wouldn't recommend wasting your time on this movie, either part.
