EN - Nymphomaniac is the wild and poetic story of a woman’s journey from birth to the age of 50 as told by the main character, self-diagnosed nymphomaniac Joe. On a cold winter’s evening, ageing bachelor Seligman finds Joe beaten up in an alley. He brings her home to his flat where he cares for her wounds and listens intently as Joe, over eight chapters, recounts the multifaceted erotic story of her life.

2014: Berlin International Film Festival - Out of Competition (DE)
Hans Herbots’s The Treatment, Waste Land, directed by Pieter Van Hees, and Jonas Govaerts’s debut feature Cub are invited to Austin for the city’s Fantastic Fest (18-25 September). They are joined by three co-productions with Flanders: Fabrice du Welz’s Alleluia, Lars von Trier’s Nymphomaniac and the animation special A Town Called Panic – The Christmas Log.
The Treatment tells the story of Nick Cafmeyer, an intelligent but troubled police inspector who’s still haunted by the unsolved disappearance of his younger brother. When a nine-year-old boy goes missing, he takes the lead in the relentless manhunt that follows. Directed by Hans Herbots, the film is based on Mo Hayder’s crime novel.
The Busan International Film Festival (October 2-11) has invited Pieter Van Hees’s Waste Land. Van Hees will himself present the psychological thriller – which is premiering in Toronto this week – at the South Korean fest. Also part of the Busan bill are Alleluia,Two Days, One Night and Nymphomaniac, which were co-produced with Flanders, as well as Flemish director Michaël R. Roskam’sThe Drop and Le meraviglie, starring local actor Sam Louwyck.
