After the jaw-droppingly, NSFW trailer that was released last November, it’s somewhat surprising to see a trailer marketing Lars Von Trier’s highly publicised film as restrained as this one. This trailer is specifically for Nymphomaniac: Volume II, since distributors thought that Von Trier’s 5-hour analysis on sex may be a little long to sit with. While the first part sees Joe (Charlotte Gainsbourg), a self-diagnosed nymphomaniac, recounting her erotic experiences to the man who saved her after a beating, the second part will delve into the darker aspects of her adult life and what led to her being in this man’s care. With Von Trier’s ability to stir the pot and the impressive ensemble he has gathered for this epic drama, our curiosity has well and truly piqued. The early reviews for Volume I have been pretty positive so far.
Starring Charlotte Gainsbourg, Stellan Skarsgard, Shia LaBeouf, Jamie Bell, Uma Thurman, Stacy Martin, Connie Nielsen, Christian Slater, Willem Dafoe, Mia Goth, Nicolas Bro, Sophie Kennedy Clark, Jens Albinus, and Udo Kier.
Nymphomaniac: Volume I will be available on VOD on March 6th and in U.S. theatres on March 21st; Nymphomaniac: Volume II will be released on VOD on April 3rd and in U.S. theatres on April 18th.
