Lars von Trier reveals chapters plan for Nymphomaniac

Danish auteur says he wants to start new film genre called digressionism.

TrustNordisk has issued the following statement concerning Lars von Trier’s new film Nymphomaniac.

“In 2011 Lars von Trier decided to refrain from all public statements and interviews. To this date he has kept his word.

“But his stories are still being told worldwide and Nymphomaniac will be no exception.

“Using a structure known from literature Nymphomaniac consists of chapters, encapsulating both VOLUME I and VOLUME II and during the next eight months, starting from June and like domino pieces counting down to the release, small bites of these chapters will be published exclusively by a community of selected newspapers around the world.

“Each chapter teaser is defined by a headline, a still and a short narrative that playfully unveils the multilayered universe of Nymphomaniac with which Lars von Trier wants to introduce a new film genre: Digressionism.

[Digress /dɪˈgrɛs, daɪ-/ verb: Depart from the main subject]

CHAPTER 1  is  THE COMPLEAT ANGLER
CHAPTER 2  is  JERÔME
CHAPTER 3  is  MRS. H
CHAPTER 4  is  DELIRIUM
CHAPTER 5  is  THE LITTLE ORGAN SCHOOL
CHAPTER 6  is  THE EASTERN & WESTERN CHURCH (THE SILENT DUCK)
CHAPTER 7  is  THE MIRROR
CHAPTER 8  is  THE GUN

“All chapters will gradually feature on NYMPHOMANIAC’s official website www.nymphomaniacthemovie.com.”

  • Oh dear, haven't we been here before with
    LVT claiming to found new genres and flying flags to attract attention to his work
    which since Breaking The Waves has been mostly underwhelming. The genre he really owns is 'Me-ism' - pleased when he stopped
    making statements and interviews. If only he'd stop making films.

  • 'Underwhelming' indeed? Where has Anonymous been lurking? LVT is one of the very few genuinely original European filmmakers, able to spark public interest and strike out in new directions with every project.
