Charlotte Gainsbourg has a new film coming up called Nymphomaniac, in which she plays a self-professed nymphomaniac who confides in a man who comes to her aid after a beating. In the hardcore film, Gainsbourg’s character Joe grants viewers glimpses into her sexual encounters. Director Lars Von Trier, whom some believe to be a pioneer in feminist erotica and whom others view as an exploitative misogynist, is known for combining pornographic imagery with art and storytelling. And he is not one to shy away from the intimate, the graphic, and the shocking.
Unsurprisingly, the film’s new posters show cast members in the throes of climax; they tilt their heads back, close their eyes, and hold their mouths agape.
Watch the film trailer below.
What do you think of concept and the posters? Intriguing, empowering, or degrading? Let us know in the comments!
