|nudity||It is explained that a young girl started masturbating when she was 2 years old, and includes a shot of a young girl from the neck up looking down, implying that she is masturbating. Two 6 year old girls are seen entering a bathroom and lowering their panties. They then proceed to grind their crotches into the wet bathroom floor. There is no nudity, but both are shown to be enjoying it. In the uncut version, you can see their partially obscured pubic area as they take off their panties, but it's for less than a second. In the Greek blu ray version, this scene goes on for much longer and shows the two girls having an orgasm from the act, they are interrupted by their mother. A 14 year old girl is shown losing her virginity by the hands of an 18 year old. Although the scene is short explicit shots of penetration are shown, and there is moaning. In the Greek blu ray a 9 year old girl is shown sitting in her fathers lap and grinding, he pushes her off after a few seconds, but the whole scene has a comedic tone to it. Two 16 year old girls have a competition to see who can have sex with the most men in the duration of a train ride. Two shots show men from behind thrusting, no nudity. A teenage girl enthusiastically gives a man a blowjob and spits out the semen. There are several shots of his genitals visibly in her mouth. The Director's Cut version is much more hardcore, with semen spurting out of the penis. Close-up shots of erect penises and the outside and inside of a woman's vulva. A man performs real cunnilingus on a woman. The Australian version mostly contains a constant flow of close of shots of men's penises comprising of all types of men, of different sizes, erections, and skin tone. Australian version shows no vaginal scenes.|
|violence||Volume I of Nyphomaniac isn't as violent as Volume II. Some occasional slapping, hitting and typical moderate violence. In one scene Joe's father suffers a series of dementia, paranoia and violent spasms.|
|profanity||30+ uses of the F-word, 3 uses of the C-word, along with countless other anatomical and scatological profanities.|
|frightening||The scene in which Mrs. H confronts her husband at Joe's apartment with her three young children and leaving in hysterics is very emotionally intense. There is a long scene where Joe's dying father is in the hospital, having spasms. This is rather distressing. The tone is fairly light at first until the stories become disturbing and graphic. Suggested MPAA Rating: NC-17 for Explicit Sequences of Graphic Sexual Content & Nudity Throughout, Disturbing Images, and Strong Language FOR ADULTS ONLY.|
