Lars Von Trier’s Nymphomaniac – First Chapter Extract

Ed Brown writes for Bleeding Cool.

In the first of what will soon be many short, text extracts from Lars Von Trier‘s Nymphomaniac, we’ve been provided with our first hints to our protagonist’s stance on sex.

The plot will take place over two films with eight chapters between them:

  • The Compleat Angler
  • Jerome
  • Mrs H
  • Delirium
  • The Little Organ School
  • The Eastern and Western Church (The Silent Duck)
  • The Gun

My respect if you actually have any idea what these chapters might entail. Besides sex.

So, here’s the first release, pertaining to chapter one, The Compleat Angler.

CHAPTER ONE

The Compleat Angler

How does an ordinary bag of chocolate sweets become a symbol of sexual victory?

As Joe and her experienced friend B embark on a train trip, they bet on how many men they can seduce on the ride.

The grand prize is a delicious bag of chocolate sweets, and it soon becomes clear to Joe that in order to win, she needs to lure the prey into biting the hook like a skilled fisherman.

What these girls will have in store for Shia LaBeouf is anyone’s game.

This first excerpt arrived at The Guardian. Over the coming months, leading up to the film’s release, we will apparently be treated with a monthly extract, one from each chapter, and sent to a different publication.

Nymphomaniac is out in Denmark on 25 December, although I wouldn’t have thought it will be a typical Christmas film.
