Lars von Trier has a knack for bringing out the best in his actors. Both Bjork and Kirsten Dunst gave career-defining performances in Dancer in the Dark and Melancholia respectively. Expectations and anticipation are high for his upcoming film which reportedly has a theatrical version and an X-rated one featuring unsimulated sex.
Nymphomaniac recounts the sexual history of Joe (Charlotte Gainsbourg) after being found beaten in an alley by Seligman (Stellan Skarsgard). He brings her home where he cares for her wounds while asking her about her life. He listens intently as Joe over the next 8 chapters recounts the lushy branched-out and multifaceted story of her life, rich in associations and interjecting incidents.
The film just debuted a slew of character posters featuring Shia Labeouf, Jamie Bell, Uma Thurman, Christian Slater, Skarsgard, Gainsbourg and many more in a state of ecstasy. In other words, orgasm faces. No release date in North America has been revealed, but it is scheduled to debut on Christmas Day in Denmark and Norway. Check out the posters below.
