Never let it be said that Lars Von Trier and the team behind his latest, Nymphomaniac, can’t find ways to generate press with controversy. Take the latest snippet from the film, which is so full of sex and nudity that YouTube scrubbed it from its site and had to take a cold shower afterwards. With that in mind, be wary of watching this at work or where ankle biters might see it, as it’s definitely Adults Only…
This particular chunk features a little organ (fnaar) and a chorale prelude by Bach that plays across pieces of footage, including nature imagery and, no hiding it, scenes of a sexual nature.
Nymphomaniac chronicles the erotic journey of self-diagnosed sex addict Joe (Charlotte Gainsbourg) from birth until the age of 50. The movie will jump around in time and cover a large number of characters. The cast also includes Shia LaBeouf, Jamie Bell, Uma Thurman, Udo Kier, Sophie Kennedy Clark, Willem Dafoe, Stellan Skarsgard, Mia Goth, Christian Slater, Nicolas Bros and Connie Nielsen. We’re sort of hoping the Chaos Reigns fox from Antichrist pops up for a cameo.That’s doubtful, as we’re pretty sure he has a strict no nudity contract.
Von Trier’s latest has a Christmas Day release set for Denmark before rolling across Europe in early 2014, though there’s no strict date for the UK to set eyes on all the sexyfuntimes.
