Very NSFW, Explicit New Trailer for Lars Von Trier’s Nymphomaniac

StumbleUponReddit

Nymphomaniac-Poster-sliceWith a name like Nymphomaniac, the latest film from Lars von Trier was always going to be explicit, and this new trailer certainly doesn’t disappoint.

Led by Charlotte Gainsbourg, who reunites with the controversial director once more, the film boasts a surprisingly impressive ensemble cast, given what von Trier was asking of them.

Gainsbourg stars alongside Stellan Skarsgård, Stacy Martin, Shia LaBeouf, Christian Slater, Jamie Bell, Uma Thurman, Willem Dafoe, Mia Goth, Sophie Kennedy Clark, Connie Nielsen, Udo Kier, Jens Albinus, and Nicolas Bro.

This new trailer doesn’t hold back in what it’s willing to show, so much so that YouTube has removed the official version, despite the filmmakers enabling the age restriction option on the website.

Needless to say, this is incredibly unsuitable viewing for work.

NYMPHOMANIAC is the wild and poetic story of a woman’s erotic journey from birth to the age of 50 as told by the main character, the self-diagnosed nymphomaniac, Joe. On a cold winter’s evening the old, charming bachelor, Seligman, finds Joe beaten up in an alleyway. He brings her home to his flat where he tends to her wounds while asking her about her life. He listens intently as Joe over the next 8 chapters recounts the lushly branched-out and multi-faceted story of her life, rich in associations and interjecting incidents.

The posters have been boasting the slogan, ‘Forget about love,’ and this latest footage from the film cements the expectation for a very dark picture, which is exactly what you’d expect from von Trier, who is directing from his own script.

Nymphomaniac is set to be released in von Trier’s native Denmark on Christmas Day. Here in the UK, it will be released on 7th March next year, with its US release date still to be announced by Magnolia. In the meantime, here’s the new trailer, and a final reminder that this is very explicit, perhaps more so than any other trailer I can recall.

    I’ll look for the film / movie, but also the critical response, with interest.
