Scholarly Seligman (Skarsgård) finds Joe (Gainsbourg) injured in an alley and takes her in. She recounts the story of her life from childhood — focusing on her many sexual encounters, on-off relationship with businessman Jerome (LaBeouf) and the trauma which left her in that passageway.
A provocative, engrossing, often hilarious, frequently tough picture. Not for all sensibilities but it’s among von Trier’s more playful, purely entertaining films, with insight and humour in even the horrors.
