Get a Taste of Lars von Trier’s ‘Nymphomaniac Vol.2’
Earlier today, we shared our interview with Nymphomaniac star Charlotte Gainsbourg. Speaking to the film and working with Trier, she noted that:
The characters go so far into suffering and depression. I know people have said that this was a trilogy—Antichrist, Melancholia, and Nymphomaniac—but I don’t see where the trilogy is. Although depression was the subject in the first two, but in this one I don’t see a trilogy. However, I can see how much he reveals of himself, and how honest he is about his suffering.
I don’t see that in a lot of other directors that I’ve worked with. For Antichrist, I remember I hadn’t gone through having any panic attacks before, and he was showing me by just being there what those anxiety attacks were, because he was going through them the whole time. A lot of it had to do with imitation, or just mimicking. In that sense I could see that I was portraying him. He’s so open about himself, and that’s why I feel that he’s portraying himself. This film was very easy to see that, and on every subject he was setting up two characters in opposition that were both him.
And today, you can finally get a taste of Nymphomaniac: Volume II, with a new trailer. See Volume I in theaters Friday, and start counting down the seconds until the latter half is released April 18th.
