Lars von Trier certainly knows how to make an impression and with his awaited film Nymphomaniac, he dead set on latching onto people’s curiosity as he allows little bits of information to trickle out.
The film, due to be released in both a softcore, and hardcore version, has certainly been the talk of the town with rumours flying out that the cast would be having real sex during filming, then that the film would be released on Christmas Day, raising a lot of eyebrows, and von Trier announcing his weird plans to stitch porn actor parts through CGI with the respective actors for the sex scenes!!!
von Trier is now letting us in on how the Nymphomaniac story will be pieced together. The film will be released in two parts, titled Nymphomaniac Volumes I and II. The story of the titular nymphomaniac Joe (Charlotte Gainsbourg) will be told in chapters, and will be titled as follows:
Chapter 1: The Complete Angler
Chapter Two: Jerome
Chapter 3: Mrs. H
Chapter 4: Delirium
Chapter 5: The Little Organ School
Chapter 6: The Eastern & Western Church (The Silent Duck)
Chapter 7: The Mirror
Chapter 8: The Gun
The chapters, some more than others, give us a little taster on what each has in store and Zentropa Entertainment will release more details in the form of teasers as the film’s release draws closer. Reportedly, each teaser will contain a still from the film, including a short narrative description of the chapter’s plot, and will only be released in a select number of newspapers worldwide. So watch this space….
