You said it was a clean install, but there seems to be lots of stuff in the htaccess from other sources - v4 mods?. I don't know enough to make suggestions, but hopefully those who can help will know what needs to be changed.

 

I have more in my file, due to Fusion skin options, but I think this is all from mine that was stock - caveat - backup yours if you choose to try this file!

Your .htaccess file is executing this rule first:

RewriteRule ^(.*).html$ index.php?main_page=$1&%{QUERY_STRING} [L]

 

I suggest you remove everything above the "Added by 1&1 abuse" line.

Sorry, my mistake. This is the actual .htaccess file I was using.

When I enable SEO URLs and click on a product from the home page the url appears in the browser  address bar but the home page remains.

 

Same with selecting any of the category listings - the url appears in the address bar but the store remains on the home page.

I think that leaves you with this:

Did the one I suggested not work, either? Mine doesn't have the 1and1 section (which you probably need to keep) or the backward compatibility section (which I'm thinking you don't need since this was a clean install).

Weird, I haven't even downloaded it.

I just tried this .htaccess file but now I'm getting error 404s.

 

The urls are strange too. Something is very wrong, as these are all for different products:

http://www.nucleusfilms.com/death-ship-p16-p18.html

http://www.nucleusfilms.com/education-anglaise-p24-p25-p26-p27-p28-p29-p30-p31-p32.html

Yes, and sadly  the site won't load at all.

"Too many redirects occurred trying to open "http://www.nucleusfilms.com/".

This might occur if you open a page that is redirected to open another page which is then redirected to open the original page.

As an experiment, remove this:

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^nucleusfilms.com$
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.nucleusfilms.com/$1 [R=301]

 

Then, the following wierdness has been discovered: if you are using the Chrome browser, "Too Many Redirects" could be caused by the weird fact that your computer's time may be off by too many minutes. Please verify that your computer's time is set as closely as possible to the real world time.
