It's been about a month since the last Nymphomaniac teaser was released, so it's the perfect time for another little glimpse at the film that promises to be Lars von Trier's most uncomfortable, brilliant yet.
In the first clip, we were introduced to a young Joe (Stacy Martin), who seems apprehensive about having sex with a random guy on a train just because her friend told her to. Obviously, she does, though, because this is a film called Nymphomaniac and everyone starts somewhere. In the second clip, Joe is led around her new place of employment by her greasy-looking boss Jerôme (Shia LaBeouf) who purposely traps the two of them in an elevator when Joe isn't paying attention, presumably so he can have sex with her. Creepy! But, judging by this very NSFW promo pic featuring Martin and LaBeouf, they eventually do become intimate.
This third clip is slightly different than the others, but no less strange. In it, we see Joe as she's speaking with the wife of one of her lovers, Mrs. H (Uma Thurman). It's not quite clear what's going on, but Mrs. H asks if she can "show the children the whoring bed," while her husband looks on, slightly distressed. Joe says nothing, and Mrs. H leads her children towards a bed and tells them she wants to show them "Daddy's favorite place."
And that, everyone, is what terrible parenting looks like. Yes, she probably just found out her husband was cheating on her, but really, keep the kids out of it! It's people like Mrs. H who make it possible for women like Dina Lohan to win 'Outstanding Mother' awards.
From the video's description:
Keeping track of a large network of lovers isn't always easy, and Joe is soon confronted with the unpleasant consequences of being a nymphomaniac.
After all, you can't make an omelet without breaking a few eggs.
Ominous! You can watch the clip above.
