See Uma Thurman in the Third Chapter of Lars von Trier’s ‘Nymphomaniac’
Back in June we got our first look at Lars von Trier’s highly-anticipated sexual epic Nymphomaniac, with a follow-up later in July. And today, a scene from the film’s third chapter has arrived, featuring Uma Thurman, in the erotic thriller starring Charlotte Gainsbourg as a self-diagnosed nymphomaniac Joe, who after being assaulted, tells her life’s story to the man who has saved her life, Stellan Skarsgard. Unfolding in a series of eight chapters that mark her life, the film will be premiering in Denmark on Christmas with a hopeful US release date for 2014 set in the near future.
Chapter 3: Mrs. H Keeping track of a large network of lovers isn’t always easy, and Joe is soon confronted with the unpleasant consequences of being a nymphomaniac. After all, you can’t make an omelet without breaking a few eggs.
The film’s official synopsis:
The film is a wild and poetic story of a woman’s erotic 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.
