Revealing Mistakes
A prosthetic penis was used for the blow job scene on the train.

Errors in Geography
The train carriage where the two girls pick up strangers is German, but the ticket collector is wearing a British Railways uniform from the 1970s.

Errors in Geography
The action is supposed to take place in England. But Joes' Apartment has European style electrical outlets on the walls, as does the hospital room where she visits her father.
Stacy Martin stated that shooting the sex scenes was a bit boring due to their technical nature.

Three actors were in a Marvel movie and one was in a DC movie. Stellan Skarsgard (The Avengers, Thor), Willem Dafoe (Spider-Man), and Jamie Bell (later on Fantastic Four). Uma Thurman was the only actress to be on DC. (Batman & Robin).

While the film features unsimulated sex, exposed genitals and penetration were digital compositions of pornographic actors onto the bodies of the film's actors.

This is the second film featuring Uma Thurman to be cut into two films due to length issues. The first was Kill Bill: Vol. 1 (2003) and Kill Bill: Vol. 2 (2004).

Shia LaBeouf was asked to send pictures of his penis in order to obtain his role. He subsequently decided to send in personal sex tapes of him and his girlfriend having sex in order to convince Lars von Trier to cast him.

Originally, this movie and Nymphomaniac: Vol. II (2013) were shot as one movie and were originally intended to be released as one cut. Due to its length it was split into two movies.

Nicole Kidman was cast as Mrs. H but she dropped out due to scheduling conflicts.

Lars von Trier's ninth feature film in which Udo Kier has been cast.

This movie was Banned in Turkey.

Liam Hemsworth turned down the part of Jerôme.
