Charlotte Gainsbourg has gotten in the middle of a man sandwich, Lars Von Trier has been gagged while promising to invent a new genre of film, and the entire cast is doing god knows what in this official image. It's been a weird, bumpy ride, which seems about right for Lars von Trier's sex odyssey "Nymphomaniac" and today the first footage has arrived.

Nymphomaniac

Charlotte Gainsbourg has gotten in the middle of a man sandwich, Lars Von Trier has been gagged while promising to invent a new genre of film, and the entire cast is doing god knows what in this official image. It's been a weird, bumpy ride, which seems about right for Lars von Trier's sex odyssey "Nymphomaniac" and today the first footage has arrived.

Continuing the pretty good though long marketing game, the official website unveiled the first clip to give you a taste of what's to come. From the first chapter, this sees young Joe (Stacy Martin) and her friend B (Sophie Kennedy Clark) looking to seduce a pair of boys (including James Northcote, from Andrea Arnold's "Wuthering Heights") on a train. Chocolate sweeties are somehow involved. This is just the a glimpse at a film that is moving through eight chapters, spread across two films, and whatever impression you get from here is likely just a sampling from a diverse buffet of Von Trier-ian weirdness. And oh yeah, don't forget about the CGI dongs. Yes, really.

So watch below, and tell us what you think. And after that, check out an extract from Chapter One, The Compleat Angler (spelling intentionally borked) below via Guardian. "Nymphomaniac" still has no release date stateside, but will hit Denmark on Christmas Day and hopefully Magnolia Releasing here won't wait to long to unspool it here as well.
