Descripción del producto
Val tiene 28 años, estudios universitarios, un gran atractivo y una cómoda posición económica. Es además una mujer muy liberada que busca constantemente nuevas experiencias para saciar su curiosidad sexual. Se acuesta con quien quiere y cuando quiere. Este modo de vida le crea numerosos problemas con los hombres, con su trabajo y con sus amigos. Todo ello, unido a la muerte de su abuela, provoca un punto de inflexión en su vida. Tras ser despedida, conoce a Jaime, un hombre del que se enamora perdidamente. Con él vive un apasionado idilio lleno de altibajos hasta que la relación se rompe de manera traumática. Val, desesperada, está a punto de acabar con su vida: se siente infinitamente solamente sola, tiene muchas deudas que saldar y ha perdido la autoestima. Decide entonces dedicarse a la prostitución de lujo. Al principio se siente completamente satisfecha: da rienda suelta a todas sus fantasías sexuales y, además, gana una gran cantidad de dinero. Pero pronto descubre la cara más sórdida de la prostitución.

When she thinks she's finally found true love and all that comes with the Cinderella complex, the dream dissolves, becoming a dark nightmare as she discovers the man of her dreams is insanely jealous, petty, paranoid, violent and abusive. So much for attempting to live out a 'normal' life, she then returns to the barrage of sexual escapades of an insatiable appetite by taking a job at a high class brothel.
The movie is anything but sleazy or exploitive, contrary to what I've written, and there are no moral judgments handed down in a holy high court of decency, no punishments enforced for living this lifestyle, no answers served up, no justifications or repercussions, etc., etc. It's not about 'good' or 'bad' people or decisions, we're more concerned here with the drama of the internal conflict as an evolutionary mechanism than the erotic aspects of the story, though they are frequent and prolific throughout the film. Nudity flows like water from a spigot, but it's handled expertly, artistically and erotically.
The underlining idea here is the double-standard that the word and concept of "nymphomania" is mans creation, utilized when a woman has sexual appetites similar or in excess to his own. (Another way to look at it is "It ain't easy being pretty, it ain't pretty being easy", but I'm being facetious). This notion frightens most men more than they'd care to admit.
The main character, excellently portrayed by Belen Fabra, carries the entire film on her shoulders, trapped by her need to experiment and lose herself in an unflinching quest for fulfillment, without guilt, conscience or remorse, determined to live her life without denial or regret. She's a triple-threat to our religious-based society, and the world's better off because of it. A well-crafted slice of exploitive arthouse drama that's worthy of watching.
I think this movie is a must see for every woman, may be we don't agree with everything, and of course you have to see it with an open mind, sadly, it's easier to judge than to understand, but it's an excellent movie, and it has become one of my favorities. I highly recommend it!!
Interesting perspective regarding the subject of love and desire. Great storyline and a taboo issue done with careful respect.
Diary of a Nymphomaniac is a story framed around the sexual journeys of a woman yet, that is not the message of the movie. I do admit it appears that way for a very large portion of the story. It is a very graphic telling of the life of a woman that is easily intoxicated by the tactile & sensual just as the title would indicate. There's a lot of nudity & lots of sexual activity so much of it in fact that it would be easy to see this as simply an exploitation movie. It certainly isn't that however.
Directed by Christina Molina & made in Spain with Spanish & French language tracks & English subtitles the movie Stars Belen Fabra as Valerie the nymphomaniac & Geraldine Chaplin as her Grandmother / counselor. At the start of the story we are shown Valerie's obsession with the tactile, the sensual & see her exploration of that part of her personality. She moves through various relationships from casual to professional while always having the small voice inside her mind questioning about normality. She knows she is abnormal sexually & wonders if love is possible.
Enter, a man she comes to love & is willing to give up all her sexual freedom for. He's rich, successful, handsome & romantic, her dream lover. Committing herself to him she discovers that he is also not a great lover. That does not deter her in the least. She wishes he was different but will accept him as he is. That is when she learns he is also insanely jealous & of course when the jealousy strikes he is vile & abusive. Her only escape is to leave him even though as she says, "I still love him"
This brings her full circle back into having only herself to deal with & she returns to her former life in order to rid herself of these memories that beset her from her `love gone bad'. Yet she is morose & searches her memory for her Grandmother's advice which has always been to not let any pleasure in life pass her by. Her grandmother, who has passed away, was a woman married to one man for many years that enjoyed home life & needlecraft. It's here at the end that Valerie understands that her grandmother's advice was to accept herself as she is & enjoy being Valerie. She has not escaped her love of the tactile & sensual but she has escaped the self doubts about who she is. Now she finally has a chance of getting a grasp on her sensual nature.
It really is a mental health workers movie as the theme could be applied to any situation one is confronted with inside yourself that you just can't seem to change. The movie could have been made about a person that just can't quit smoking but then who would watch that. The degree of sexuality in this movie is high but it is also tastefully done & central to the storyline. The drawback is that lots of people will watch for the sex scenes only & then the message goes a' glimmering. I believe that's the viewer's problem, not the directors. I did enjoy Geraldine Chaplin's part in this show even though it's small. The quite, self-assured advice given without explanation played well at the end of the movie.
It was a surprisingly interesting and well done movie.
