The uncut version of Lars von Trier's "Nymphomaniac Volume I" is set to premiere out of competition at the upcoming Berlin International Film Festival. This will be the only screening of the uncut "Volume I"; per TrustNordisk, the film's sales company, an uncut version of "Volume II" will premiere later in 2014.

At this point it's getting a little difficult to keep track of the various cuts of this sprawling two-part film. A shorter version, designed for a worldwide theatrical rollout starting December 25, is also in two parts. That version is the one coming to US shores, with the first installment on March 21 and the second on April 18.

It's this shorter two-part version that critics have been seeing, and generally liking thus far -- here's our review roundup for the film. The trailer is here.

THR speculates that a von Trier film premiering at Berlin, the former Third Reich capitol and current site of a large Holocaust memorial, could prove controversial. Von Trier of course caused an uproar at Cannes in 2011, with incendiary remarks about finding out that he was "really a Nazi, which also gave me some pleasure," and that he "understands Hitler."
