Lars von Trier, who has refrained from doing press following his 2011
Cannes gaffe, has been teasing his latest work, the two-part sexual
epic “Nymphomaniac,” with a lot of ingredients: a sly poster, a mysterious website, and a tantalizing first clip. Yesterday, Vulture posted an exclusive still from the film featuring Shia LaBeouf and a very naked Stacy Martin. Today a second clip from the film has hit the web, this one showing LaBeouf and Martin in action.
The scene, like the still released yesterday, is culled from the second chapter of “Nymphomaniac” (the two-part
film is composed of eight chapters total). The chapter titled “Jerôme” recalls Joe’s
(the film’s heroine played by Martin in her younger years and Charlotte
Gainsbourg as an adult) illicit encounter with a young man (LaBeouf). We’re guessing this clip takes place before said encounter.
“Nymphomaniac” opens in Denmark on Christmas Day. U.S. distributor Magnolia has yet to announce a stateside release date. Watch the clip below:
