It’s probably safe to say that making Lars von Trier‘s two-part sex epic “Nymphomaniac” was far from the usual film experience. But even for Charlotte Gainsbourg, making her third movie with the director following “Antichrist” and “Melancholia,” the production offered up some interesting decisions for the actress. Namely, she got to pick her own sex stunt double.
“It was so embarrassing,” she told Vulture. “But because porn actresses have no hair down there, they had to put—too much hair I think. It was all fake hair. The guy who did the props, it was so funny: He had all these dicks and fake vaginas.” So yes, there are dicks and fake vaginas in von Trier’s study of one woman’s out of control sexual drive, with a new titillating trailer for “Nymphomaniac Volume 2” arriving. But once you get the premise out of the way, the movie offers up much more. At least part one does, with our review of the uncut version from Berlin stating the effort was “bold and daring” and stuffed with ideas.
“Nymphomaniac: Part One” opens in theaters on March 21, 2014 and is currently On Demand. “Nymphomaniac: Part Two” will open in theaters on April 18, 2014 and will be available On Demand as of March 20, 2014. Watch the trailer for part 2, followed by the Rammstein song which has powered the movie for much of its marketing campaign.
