First ‘Nymphomaniac’ Clip Wants You to Close Your Eyes and Think of Chocolate Sweeties

By  · Published on June 28th, 2013

In the first clip from Nymphomaniac, Lars von Trier is offering some dynamite advice on how to pick up strange young men on trains for anonymous sex. I mean, it’s not von Trier directly offering tips into the camera, but it’s still pretty enticing.

He’s also offered the titles of the eight chapters of the film:

  1. The Compleat Angler
  2. Jerome
  3. Mrs. H
  4. Delirium
  5. The Little Organ School
  6. The Eastern and The Western Church (The Silent Duck)
  7. The Mirror
  8. The Gun

In this very brief tease from “The Compleat Angler,” von Trier offers his version of The Lady Vanishes…Into the Train Lavatory with a Boy:

The young nervous woman there is Joe (Stacy Martin) who grows up to be our main heroine (played by Charlotte Gainsbourg).

So far there’s no official release date for the US, although it’ll be out in some European countries over Christmas, and we can definitely expect more little appetizers like this to come.
