Editorial Reviews

The film that scandalized Europe now comes to America uncut and uncensored: Belén Fabra delivers a fearless performance as Val, an intelligent and attractive young executive who copes with a bad breakup by embracing her own insatiable pleasure. And the more she explores, the further she is willing to go. In a kinky journey that takes her from trysts with strangers to professional prostitution, when does a modern woman addicted to sexual adventure reach the point of no return? Leonardo Sbaraglia (INTACTO), Ángela Molina (Almodovar s LIVE FLESH and BROKEN EMBRACES) and the legendary Geraldine Chaplin (DOCTOR ZHIVAGO) co-star in this tale of female empowerment and sexual liberation from director Christian Molina and based on the notorious best-selling novel by Valérie Tasso.

4.0 out of 5 stars Arthouse Exploitation That's More 'Art' Than 'Ex'... August 7, 2010
Format:DVD
This tale, based on a best-selling book by Spanish novelist Valerie Tasso, centers on a woman who, since her first sexual encounter, has had a strong desire to explore the heightened sense of arousal and euphoria she experiences each time she has sex. Her appetite is almost unquenchable, her lovers many and varied. She lives by the credo her grandmother (Geraldine Chaplin) instilled in her, not to deny herself the pleasures of life, whatever they be.

When she thinks she's finally found true love and all that comes with the Cinderella complex, the dream dissolves, becoming a dark nightmare as she discovers the man of her dreams is insanely jealous, petty, paranoid, violent and abusive. So much for attempting to live out a 'normal' life, she then returns to the barrage of sexual escapades of an insatiable appetite by taking a job at a high class brothel.

The movie is anything but sleazy or exploitive, contrary to what I've written, and there are no moral judgments handed down in a holy high court of decency, no punishments enforced for living this lifestyle, no answers served up, no justifications or repercussions, etc., etc. It's not about 'good' or 'bad' people or decisions, we're more concerned here with the drama of the internal conflict as an evolutionary mechanism than the erotic aspects of the story, though they are frequent and prolific throughout the film. Nudity flows like water from a spigot, but it's handled expertly, artistically and erotically.

The underlining idea here is the double-standard that the word and concept of "nymphomania" is mans creation, utilized when a woman has sexual appetites similar or in excess to his own. (Another way to look at it is "It ain't easy being pretty, it ain't pretty being easy", but I'm being facetious).

5.0 out of 5 stars EXQUISITE MOVIE!!! March 25, 2011
Format:DVD
I absolutely loved this movie. With time it'll become a masterpiece of female empowerment. A taboo subject treated tastefully, the execution of the movie is excellent, the script, the settings, the photography, the art, the music, the direction, everything is done very well. But, I must say Belén's performance is flawless, she mainly had all the responsibility of the movie on her shoulders, and she delivers a brilliant performance. As Valeria Tasso said: "The most difficult and wonderful dress a woman wears is the nudity and Belen wears it with dignity, honor and attitude". This film is absolutely thought and action provoking, I'm very glad films like this are being presented, specially in Spanish, where in name of the "religion and decency" the nymphomaniac is still something that is valid. This movie presents a portrait of a woman who looks for love in all the wrong places, she wants intimacy and she looks for it through sex, she ends up in toxic relationships that put even her life in danger. And, until she finds herself and learns to love and accept herself, she finds peace with who she is, and from that moment she doesn't care if she's called a nymphomaniac. I think this concept of "nymphomaniac" is vanishing, is pointless, the sexual pleasure of a woman is a birth right, of course we have to enjoy this right with responsibility, and with love and respect to ourselves and demand that from our partners.

I think this movie is a must see for every woman, may be we don't agree with everything, and of course you have to see it with an open mind, sadly, it's easier to judge than to understand, but it's an excellent movie, and it has become one of my favorities. I highly recommend it!!

4.0 out of 5 stars not a smut film, but a smart film that....... September 30, 2010
By Ben
Format:DVD
...tackles the life of a single woman who seems to have an overwhelming sex desire until it ruins her. She find love, finally, but she finds out too late that not only love makes your world wonderful, too much love kills too. I had to admit that I thought this would be those kind of films where you only cares about the undressing scenes and how many times copulations take place in the name of art or some avant-garde erotica nonsense, but this movie is more than skin deep.
Interesting perspective regarding the subject of love and desire. Great storyline and a taboo issue done with careful respect.

4.0 out of 5 stars Are they talking to me? December 21, 2011
Format:DVD
*******SPOILERS*******

Diary of a Nymphomaniac is a story framed around the sexual journeys of a woman yet, that is not the message of the movie. I do admit it appears that way for a very large portion of the story. It is a very graphic telling of the life of a woman that is easily intoxicated by the tactile & sensual just as the title would indicate. There's a lot of nudity & lots of sexual activity so much of it in fact that it would be easy to see this as simply an exploitation movie. It certainly isn't that however.

Directed by Christina Molina & made in Spain with Spanish & French language tracks & English subtitles the movie Stars Belen Fabra as Valerie the nymphomaniac & Geraldine Chaplin as her Grandmother / counselor. At the start of the story we are shown Valerie's obsession with the tactile, the sensual & see her exploration of that part of her personality. She moves through various relationships from casual to professional while always having the small voice inside her mind questioning about normality. She knows she is abnormal sexually & wonders if love is possible.

Enter, a man she comes to love & is willing to give up all her sexual freedom for. He's rich, successful, handsome & romantic, her dream lover. Committing herself to him she discovers that he is also not a great lover. That does not deter her in the least. She wishes he was different but will accept him as he is. That is when she learns he is also insanely jealous & of course when the jealousy strikes he is vile & abusive. Her only escape is to leave him even though as she says, "I still love him"

This brings her full circle back into having only herself to deal with & she returns to her former life in order to rid herself of these memories that beset her from her `love gone bad'.
