Watch the First (Sadly SFW) Clip from Lars Von Trier’s ‘Nymphomaniac’

+

Lars Von Trier’s Nymphomaniac is a movie about fucking. Lots of it, the fucking, done by actors and actresses like Charlotte Gainsbourg, Shia LaBeouf, Uma Thurman, Willem Dafoe, Jamie Bell, and any number of other young nubiles and old pros who’ve been cast in the Danish director’s new movie about a woman (Gainsbourg) narrating the sordid details of her sexual career. It’s tantalizing, the idea of watching all this fucking with someone you’d like to consensually put your mouth on—the ultimate date movie for couples comfortable enough to pull it off—and in anticipation of its impending release, here’s the first, SFW clip from the film in which two of the young female characters discuss all the men they’re about to do it with for the ultimate prize of…a bag of chocolates. That’s as reasonable an excuse for seduction as anything in Von Trier’s world of hell-faced foxes, planetary-induced depression and cosmic callousness toward anyone trying to act nobly. The first installation of the two-part movie doesn’t have an official U.S. release date, though we might expect it just in time for Oscar season.
