Each month, director Lars Von Trier will be teasing a new “chapter” of his eagerly anticipated new film Nymphomaniac, which casts Charlotte Gainsbourg as Joe, a woman recounting her vast and varied sexual exploits. This month, Von Trier has kindly provided Vulture with the exclusive tease for the movie’s second chapter, “Jerôme,” in which Joe recalls her encounter with a young man played by Shia LaBeouf. Above, you can check out the NSFW still from the chapter’s sex scene — featuring LaBeouf and actress Stacy Martin as the younger Joe — and below, we’ve got the short narrative from Von Trier describing the chapter’s content.
For more on Nymphomaniac, keep an eye on the film’s official site: Footage from this chapter will be debuting tomorrow morning at 7 a.m. EST. As for the movie itself, expect a release from Magnolia Pictures in early 2014.
Here is Von Trier’s evocative description of Nymphomaniac’s second chapter:
“Love is just lust with jealousy added”
Though love is a shallow feeling in the eyes of the cynical nymphomaniac, young Joe is met by forces penetrating her armoured defences.
His name is Jerôme.
