NYMPHOMANIAC ready for release ultimo 2013




First there was one film, then there was two and now there's so much material that anything is possible...


After 268 script pages, 11 weeks of shooting and an immense postproduction with over 100 hours of material to follow, Lars von Trier will complete his upcoming NYMPHOMANIAC ultimo 2013. Marking the multifaceted universe of NYMPHOMANIAC, an additional still is hereby released.


The much talked about NYMPHOMANIAC has been the center of speculations ever since the project was announced - and rightfully so; With several references to a topic that never goes out of style - sex - the remarkable story of Joe, a 50-year-old self-diagnosed nymphomaniac looking back at her life, stars the biggest international ensemble cast ever in the history of Trier´s filmmaking and it contains visually aesthetic choices never before seen in a Trier film.


Long time business partner and friend with Trier, CEO of Zentropa Peter Aalbæk Jensen: "This film will probably be Lars von Trier's masterpiece. It contains so much potential in terms of humor, grandiose and visual quality and shows a Lars von Trier at his best. Lars has currently edited a quarter of the material and for a merchant like me it brings a smile to my face watching lust and laughter go hand in hand with a drama such as this. This is Lars´ most ambitious film to date".

Handling the international sales of NYMPHOMANIAC, TrustNordisk is preselling the film at this year´s European Film Market. Lucky enough to make the market´s deadlines last minute, a promo of the first part of the film has been produced for a closed buyers-only event.


CEO of TrustNordisk Rikke Ennis about the plans for release: "NYMPHOMANIAC is in every way controversial and exciting and I'm convinced that the extensive material and time given allows us to produce a campaign that rocks the entire cinema landscape".


NYMPHOMANIAC includes an international ensemble cast consisting of Charlotte Gainsbourg and Stellan Skarsgård along with Stacy Martin, Shia LaBeouf, Jamie Bell, Christian Slater, Uma Thurman, Willem Dafoe, Connie Nielsen, Mia Goth, Udo Kier, Jean-Marc Barr, Caroline Goodall, Kate Ashfield, Saskia Reeves, Sophie Kennedy Clark, Hugo Speer, Felicity Gilbert, Michaël Pas, Jesper Christensen, Jens Albinus, Nicolas Bro, Cyron Melville, Shanti Roney, Omar Shargawi, Tania Carlin, Severin von Hoensbroech, Peter Gilbert Cotton and many more.


The film is a wild and poetic story of a woman´s journey from birth to the age of 50 as told by the main character, the self-diagnosed nymphomaniac, Joe (Gainsbourg). On a cold winter´s evening the old, charming bachelor, Seligman (Skarsgård), finds Joe beaten up in an alley. He brings her home to his flat where he cares for her wounds while asking her about her life. He listens intently as Joe over the next 8 chapters recounts the lushly branched-out and multi faceted story of her life, rich in associations and interjecting incidents.
