Lars von Trier is king of controversy when it comes to filmmaking. For proof, just watch any press conference he’s done for Melancholia or Antichrist and you’ll see nothing positive come out of his films. Mix his work with a controversial metal band from Germany like Rammstein, and you get the first red band trailer for Nymphomaniac, a film about a female sex addict who recounts her erotic experiences to the man (Stellan Skarsgård) who saved her after a beating.
As soon as Rammstein’s song “Führe Mich” kicks in, which is pretty much as soon as you hit play, you’re in for fucked up ride and jump right into the sex world of Joe (Charlotte Gainsbourg) and a younger Joe played by Stacy Martin, the main character in the film who most likely has more sex than any other person on the planet.
Personally, I wouldn’t be surprised if this film ends up in the porn section at your localstore since the sex scenes are explicit enough to give you the hardest boner just from watching the trailer. The film actually features real sex, but with body doubles and some CGI use.
Curious to see what Trier has been up too, then watch this trailer.
