New International 'Nymphomaniac: Volume II' Trailer is Another Tease
"When you buy a tiger, right… You also have to feed it, and satisfy it. Right?" Here we go again. Another brand new international trailer has debuted, this time specifically for Nymphomaniac: Volume II, the second half of Lars von Trier's new film starring Charlotte Gainsbourg. The first part, Nymphomaniac: Vol. I, just premiered recently at Sundance and also hit theaters in Denmark in late December; it will also play at the Berlin Film Festival next. The entire story (and the reason it's split) will chronicle the life, from youth to age 50, of the nymphomaniac character "Joe". We've already featured a trailer, posters + teaser clips before. But it looks like things get a bit wilder in the second half, so watch out, this footage isn't for the squeamish.
Latest international trailer for Lars von Trier's Nymphomaniac: Volume II, found via The Film Stage:
Forget about love. A self-diagnosed nymphomaniac recounts her erotic experiences to the man who saved her after a beating. French-English actress Charlotte Gainsbourg, who appeared explicitly in von Trier's Antichrist a few years ago, will play Joe, as the story is about her "hidden erotic desires" and spans her life story from a young age to age 50. Nymphomaniac is written and directed by controversial Danish filmmaker Lars von Trier (Breaking the Waves, Dancer in the Dark, Dogville, Antichrist, Melancholia), who filmed two different versions and split the story into two volumes. Nymphomaniac was first released in Denmark on December 25th, 2013 and will be out this spring in the US from Mangolia starting in March and April.

Having a notorious pervert as a father who she dueted with for a song about incest when she was 12 or 13, it is no surprise that Gainsbourg is willing to go all out in this type of film. By the way, I am not making that up, go youtube "Lemon Incest". Her father was a famous French singer, for those of you who did not already know, and he was extremely controversial, and used her in an EXTREMELY suggestive song and music video. Nothing has changed in 30 years, it seems...

So what I got from your reply is that incest is totally not trite, shallow, and boring, and is merely unconveeeeeentional. Gotcha. You are probably a Tumblr snowflake social justice warrior, too I bet. And watch out for those white, cisgender, heterosexual, "bible thumpers".... they're comin' for ya!

No, being against incest is not an opinion that I have formed, it is a moral value that society has formed, because it leads to retarded children and is disgusting. Back to Tumblr with you sir. Goodbye.

Will never see another Lars Von Trier film. Everyone involved in Melancholia should be horsewhipped for all eternity, whilst doused in flaming napalm. By the end of that flick, I was standing there shouting at the TV: "FINALLY, YOU HAVE ARRIVED, SWEET METEOR OF DEATH . . . TAKE ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

I'm sure it's quality film making, but not on a subject matter I'm interested in watching.

Porn? Art? What's the difference? How about something else entirely? How about the novel concept of the movie going audience growing up and get over trying to tell everyone else in the audience what they should or should not be watching. Personally, I won't see the movie, but I'm glad movie makers are still pushing the bounds of cinema. In 500 years, researchers will have a lot of data with which to analyze the twenty first century and beyond...

Art is anything you want it to be, but I'm sure this isn't porn. There's a well developed story with a great deal of graphic sexual acts and extensive nudity. Art? Yes. But whether it's a subject matter one wants to explore is entirely different. I'd rather go to a Monet exhibit then a Luis Royo. That isn't to say Royo doesn't do great work, just not my preference. This is engineered for a specific audience, but most movies are, right? Granted, this one won't draw the same numbers as Jurassic Park or The Avengers. Point is: I know what you're trying to say. I get it, but I also don't discount people who are disgusted by it. Many people, societies, or groups have vocalized distaste for graphic sexual content for hundreds and hundreds of years. I'm sure many people will continue to do so for hundreds of more years. It is what it is.

Von Trier's films are pretentious as hell. I will never be able to take him seriously.
