‘Nymphomaniac’ to be divided in eight chapters


Lars von Trier has spilled a couple new details regarding his new film Nymphomaniac. The film is supposed to be presented in two volumes, while the Danish auteur also mentioned that he hopes to introduce a new genre called digressionism. The film about Joe (Charlotte Gainsbourg), a self-diagnosed nymphomaniac will be divided in eight chapters:

1. The Compleat Angler
2. Jerome
3. Mrs. H
4. Delirium
5. The Little Organ School
6. The Eastern & Western Church (The Silent Duck)
7. The Mirror
8. The Gun

I love von Trier, but when he talks about a “new genre” he clearly is just working his marketing magic, much like his Dogme gimmick. Besides, he has already directed a film with a similar structure in Dogville (2003), but I digress.

Still, Melancholia was my favorite film of 2011 and I highly anticipate this one.
