      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      It doesn't quite live up to the promise of the first installment, but Nymphomaniac: Volume II still benefits from Lars von Trier's singular craft and vision, as well as a bravura performance from Charlotte Gainsbourg.

      Jason Bailey Flavorwire Its riskiness and lack of restraint are admirable, necessary even; the films' indulgences are all of a piece with its boldness and brilliance. It feels like an uncut bag of pure Von Trier. Jun 18, 2016 Full Review Rafer Guzman Newsday "Volume II" is no more fulfilling than "Volume I." Rated: 2/4 Apr 17, 2014 Full Review Tom Long Detroit News It's very weird, given, but it's also effective. Rated: A- Apr 11, 2014 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review An incredibly moving and emotionally profound psychosexual epic is cheapened on a devastating scale by the director's juvenile humor, tiresome desire to shock, and finally, by his need to end Nymphomaniac with an underwhelming and ugly touch of irony. Rated: 2/4 Aug 15, 2022 Full Review Robert Sims Lights Camera Austin The second and final volume of Lars von Trier's Nymphomaniac discounts the sexual freedom a woman can and should enjoy and trivializes the compulsive, damaging nature of addiction. Jan 22, 2022 Full Review Ard Vijn ScreenAnarchy In this second part, much of the beauty and wonder from Volume 1 are gone (and missed). Thankfully, some humor remains, but Lars Von Trier breaks many things I'd rather have left unbroken. Jan 11, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews

      Alec B While it lacks the near "rock n' roll" anarchism of the first part, Volume II makes up for it by pushing the heavy nihilism we know, love, and expect from Lars von Trier to new heights (or depths really). Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 11/10/23 Full Review Ari V Like a lot of lesser Triers, has moments—and moments that will likely stick with me for decades—but gets too undisciplined and silly to come together in a full way. The very last note here especially, feels like a rushed cop-out. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 04/02/23 Full Review Audience Member It's not a picture I would enthusiastically recommend to anyone I suppose but I couldn't turn away from it due to the brazen deep-dive into these taboo kind of subjects. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/20/23 Full Review Audience Member Vol. I was a good part and I expected this one to be a good continuation but it was nothing I expected. it was unnecessarily too long and the ending didn't have any sense. They could have streched Vol. I to 1 hour more, there was no need of 3 hours more. Overall, it was a big disappointment for me. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Audience Member Even though the end is alittle bizarre or somehow unnecessary, the trip is worth it. This film is extremely subversive, in the good way. It puts the viewer in moral and social dilemmas, there's nothing normative, Charlotte is on fire. This movie is not funny, atually is pretty sad, strangely it never bring desire, is a very well-done story not for everybody. Lars von Trier on his sharpest, most challenging and riskiest version. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review dave s More verbose and esoteric than the first part, Nymphomaniac: Volume 2 dabbles in mysticism, theology, history, and a myriad of other subjects. Unfortunately, these meanderings cause it to lose a bit of the narrative drive that propelled Volume 1, but it remains an intriguing, if not disturbing, glimpse into the world of sexual addiction. In one interesting scene, director Lars von Trier recreates a portion of the opening scene from his own film, Antichrist, where a young boy faces imminent danger due to the inattention of his parents. Like Volume 1, this is clearly not for all tastes. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Read all reviews
