ADVOCATES of Danish provocateur Lars von Trier have described his pornographic "Nymphomaniac" movies, a bit hopefully, as scandalous.
In fact, there is no scandal. Volume I came and went with barely a peep - on the whole, people would rather see "Noah" - and though Volume I and Volume II (opening today) are hailed as worth talking about, no one is.
Perhaps because folks feel they can't get a word in edgewise. Von Trier himself seems to be doing most of the talking, via the desultory narration of his protagonist Joe (Charlotte Gainsbourg), who relates her story of sexual pilgrimage to a bookish gentleman (Stellan Skarsgard).
