Hey guys! Horrorella here...
Lars von Trier's new film, NYMPHOMANIAC, is already causing a stir, and we don't even have a trailer yet. But Charlotte Gainsbourg playing a sex-addict and rumors of tons of onscreen sex is enough to get people talking.
NYMPHOMANIAC tells the story of a self-diagnosed sex-addict (Gainsbourg), who recounts her experiences one night to a man (Stellan Skarsgård) who saves her after an assault. The story will be divided into eight chapters, spanning two films.
The Guardian released the synopsis for the first chapter, and we have a clip below.
The clip itself is tame, but it sets up the seductive nature that we will see later on in the film. Here, young Joe (who will eventually become the nymphomaniac of the title, and is played here by Stacy Martin) and her friend, the more sexually experienced B (Sophie Kennedy Clark) make a bet to see who can seduce the most men on the train ride. The prize? A coveted bag of chocolate sweets.
The Official Synopsis:
– Chapter 1 –
The Compleat Angler
How does an ordinary bag of chocolate sweets become a symbol of sexual victory?
As Joe and her experienced friend B embark on a train trip, they bet on how many men they can seduce on the ride.
The grand prize is a delicious bag of chocolate sweets, and it soon becomes clear to Joe that in order to win, she needs to lure the prey into biting the hook like a skilled fisherman.
NYMPHOMANIAC doesn't have a U.S. release date yet, but it will begin opening in Europe around Christmas, so hopefully we will see it around that time as well.
