In case you didn't know, Lars von Trier really likes sex. Last night, the Dutch tasty Danish filmmaker's latest film, Nymphomaniac, bowed at the Berlin Film Festival, and guess what it's about?
In a jokey t-shirt that read 'Persona Non Grata' over a Cannes Film Festival logo (referencing a 2011 Cannes-wielded ban-hammer after cracking Nazi jokes and outing himself as a Hitler sympathizer while promoting his then-new film, Melancholia), Trier released an additional NSFW trailer, Chapter Five, in the eight-chapter movie about protagonist Charlotte Gainsbourg's self-diagnosed nymphomania. It's sex and Baroque for a coveted cast that includes Stellan Skarsgard, Uma Thurman, Willem Dafoe, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Christian Slater -- and Shia Labeouf.
Above is Chapter 5, The Little Organ School, described as: A chorale prelude by Bach: Three voices each with its own character, but in complete harmony. In other words: POLYPHONY. The nymphomaniac is easily inspired, and acts it out.
