A new NSFW image and clip from director Lars Von Trier’s upcoming two-part drama Nymphomaniac have been released online. Charlotte Gainsbourg stars as Joe, a self-diagnosed nymphomaniac who recounts her life story to Seligman (Stellan Skarsgard), an old, charming bachelor who finds Joe beaten up in an alley. Joe then recounts to him the story of her erotic life, from birth to the age of fifty. The film is broken up into eight different chapters, and today’s clip and image both come from Chapter Two, titled “Jerôme,” which stars Shia LaBeouf and Stacy Martin. The clip is rather tame compared to the image, though LaBeouf does appear to be playing a rather sleazy character.
Hit the jump to check out the image and clip. Nymphomaniac opens on Christmas Day in Denmark but doesn’t yet have a US release date.
Here’s the synopsis for Chapter Two:
Chapter 2: Jerôme
“Love is just lust with jealousy added”
Though love is a shallow feeling in the eyes of the cynical nymphomaniac, young Joe is met by forces penetrating her armoured defences.
His name is Jerôme.
