The longer, more explicit version of scandal-courting Danish director Lars von Trier's sex addiction opus "Nymphomaniac Volume I" premiered to loud applause Sunday at the Berlin International Film Festival.Von Trier refused to join the subsequent news conference, leaving his stars Stellan Skarsgard, Shia LaBeouf, Christian Slater, Uma Thurman and newcomer Stacy Martin to face the press.The movie traces the story of Joe (Charlotte Gainsbourg) and her sexual awakening from birth to age 50 .For a film with major Hollywood actors, the erotic encounters leave little to the imagination – complete with full-frontal nudity and explicit sex acts filmed using porn actors as doubles and prostheses.A model in her first film role, Martin said that she developed a relationship with von Trier and her on-screen lovers which allowed her to abandon her inhibitions.
