While it's not nearly as provocative as the very NSFW version that dropped late last year, the U.S. trailer for "Nymphomaniac: Volume 1" will surely still raise a few eyebrows. And for fans, it offers up new footage and voiceover as well, to ease you in to Lars von Trier's latest assault on the sense and intellect.

While it's not nearly as provocative as the very NSFW version that dropped late last year, the U.S. trailer for "Nymphomaniac: Volume I" will surely still raise a few eyebrows. And for fans, it offers up new footage and voiceover as well, to ease you in to Lars von Trier's latest assault on the sense and intellect.

And we say intellect because perhaps the most surprising thing about the first part of the director's sex odyssey is how smart it is. "It is a symphony, or perhaps a thrusting, punk-inflected heavy metal power grind of rude, funny, sexy, sad, gross, pretentious, meta and brilliant, and sometimes all of these things at the same time," Jessica Kiang wrote in her review of the director's cut out of Berlin. "But out of what should be discordant, salacious, self-indulgent and ugly, von Trier, through sheer storytelling and filmmaking chutzpah, has crafted something witty and clever and thrilling, that absorbed our attention like a sponge and displayed, beneath all that brio, a kind of wisdom we haven't seen before from the filmmaker."

Are you excited yet? Rebel against love by watching the new trailer below, and check out the new poster too. The theatrical version of "Nymphomaniac Volume 1" hits VOD on March 6th and theaters on March 21st.
