NYMPH()MANIAC is the wild and poetic story of a woman’s journey from birth to the age of 50 as told by the main character, the selfdiagnosed nymphomaniac, Joe. On a cold winter’s evening the old, charming bachelor Seligman finds Joe beaten up in an alley. He brings her home to his flat where he cares for her wounds while asking her about her life. He listens intently as Joe over the next eight chapters recounts the lushy branched-out and multifaceted story of her life, rich inassociations and interjecting incidents. This two-part cinematic coming of-age story, presented as the long version of the ‘Director’s Cut’, depicting the central character’s arousal and despair, pain and lust, makes a welter of literary references: from the Bible to the Arabian Nights, fromthe Decameron to the Marquis de Sade.
