The plot for Lars Von Trier's Nymphomaniac has been revealed
Posted by: Zack Bruce
The films of Lars Von Trier are anything but normal. You gotta give him credit when it comes to thinking outside the box. While Hollywood is concerned with nostalgia and reboots, Von Trier is coming up with some pretty crazy stuff.
I can’t even begin to explain his upcoming film, MELANCHOLIA starring Kirsten Dunst. Have you seen the trailer? It’s pretty out there. Currently the director is researching a new film which will be titled, NYMPHOMANIAC and it follows “the erotic life of a woman from the age of zero to the age of 50.”
The film will be quite graphic sexually so Von Trier is planning, “two versions – one a hardcore cut likely to feature scenes of penetration and a softer version that can be shown in more mainstream cinemas. Despite the likely graphic sexual content, the project is understood to be primarily dialogue-driven.” The story will contain eight chapter like “The Western and Eastern Church” and “The Little Organ School.”
Producer on the project, Peter Aalbæk Jensen said this, “He (Von Trier) is really keen on doing this thing. I think that this will be a very amusing film also, very erotic but very funny also. I guess we have something which could generate some press attention. How pornographic it will be, that we have to see in terms of what financing dictates.”
