Lars Von Trier plans to use body doubles for the hardcore sex scenes in Nymphomaniac

05.21.2013

Lars Von Trier has become the master of shocking cinema over the last few years with both ANTICHRIST and MELANCHOLIA stirring up audiences. Then he announced that his latest movie, NYMPHOMANIAC, would feature hardcore sex scenes starring popular actors like Shia LaBeouf, Willem Dafoe, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Christian Slater, and Uma Thurman. But, with the film not ready in time for the Cannes Film Festival, many have been left wondering what the hold up is.

Von Trier is actually delayed with the film because the sex scenes will require quite a bit of editing to make them work. In fact, while it will look like we are seeing Shia's LaBeouf on the big screen, it will actually be another actor.

“We shot the actors pretending to have sex and then had the body doubles, who really did have sex, and in post we will digital-impose the two,” Vesth explained. “So above the waist it will be the star and the below the waist it will be the doubles.”

So, while this does not rule out full nudity for the actors, there definitely will not be any...ahem...insertion.  It remains to be seen how exactly this will look on screen, but Von Trier is an accomplished director who may be able to pull it off.  The Hollywood Reporter also indicates the movie will feature some tricks like double exposure, symbols, and more on screen that may make this more than just a film with pornographic elements.

“Lars has thrown everything in this one. It's about religion, about God, about philosophy,” said Vesth, adding that she hopes von Trier ends his self-imposed ban on talking publicly, which followed his controversial Nazi comments in Cannes two years ago. “There's so much to talk about with this movie. I hope he changes his mind and starts giving interviews again.”

Von Trier is an acquired taste.  I have only been able to watch ANTICHRIST twice and MELANCHOLIA once.  I am glad I experienced them, but I have already seen Willem Dafoe's junk, I don't need to see it again.
