Upon finding a battered woman (Charlotte Gainsbourg) left for dead in an alleyway, a kindly intellectual (Stellan Skarsgård) brings her to his apartment for nursing. His inquiry into what happened brings her to recount stunning episodes from a lifetime vigorously spent in unrepentant erotic experimentation. The opening half of Lars von Trier's controversially explicit opus co-stars Stacy Martin, Shia LaBeouf, Uma Thurman, Christian Slater, and Connie Nielsen. 117 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital 5.1; Subtitles: English (SDH), Spanish; featurettes; theatrical trailer.
