I’m going to start by saying that I don’t like Lars Von Trier. His films are able to cut straight to my core, leaving me depressed and disturbed. With that said, I am hesitantly looking forward to his latest movie Nymphomaniac.
Though I’m sure that Nymphomaniac will be an emotionally draining watch and could likely turn me off sex for a while, at least we’ll get wild sex scenes from stars Charlotte Gainsbourg and Uma Thurman, plus the acting and sex scenes debuts of babes Mia Goth and Stacy Martin.
Just watch the trailer and you can decide for yourself whether or not you want to endure the hardship of a Lars Von Trier film for the sake of graphic Charlotte Gainsbourg, Uma Thurman, Mia Goth, Stacy Martin, Shia Labeouf, Christian Slater, and Willem Dafoe sex scenes.
Yes, there will definitely be sex but it also looks very brutal.
Screen Daily is reporting that there are two versions of Nymphomaniac coming soon. The shorter, 4-hour cut of Nymphomaniac will be released in Denmark on Christmas Day and then internationally in the early part of 2014. The longer and more sexually explicit (i.e. more close-ups of genitals) 5.5 hour cut of Nymphomaniac will be released a few months later in 2014.
It’s probably going to be a masterpiece, but do you really have time to watch a 4 to 5.5 hour long art-house porn movie that will leave you depressed and hating sex?
I know I don’t. No word on whether or not Von Trier plans to make a third cut featuring just the sexy celebrities having sex and none of the depressing stuff in between, but I’m sure the internet will take care of that once the film is released.
And just so you know, when asked about the sex scenes in Nymphomaniac, producer Louise Vesth said, “We shot the actors pretending to have sex and then had the body doubles, who really did have sex, and in post we will digital-impose the two. So above the waist it will be the star and below the waist it will be the doubles.”
So unfortunately, these sexy celebrities aren’t really having sex but it’s pretty damn close.
