The subject of director Lars von Trier's erotic epic Nymphomaniac, which is described as four-hour sex-o-rama, has already created a big controversy and outrage on the internet. A recently released photo of the Hollywood movie, which features Shia LaBeouf and Stacy Martin engaged in a nude passionate act, is now going viral online.
Written and directed by Lars von Trier, Nymphomaniac is all about a self-diagnosed nymphomaniac, who recounts her erotic adventures to a lonely bachelor. The director has planned Nymphomaniac as two full length features, which will be released in both hard-core and soft-core versions, reports Hollywood Reporter.
The shooting of Nymphomaniac is already over and post-production works are going on at brisk pace. Lars von Trier says, "We're doing it for real. Everything that is illegal, we'll shoot in blurred images. Other than that, everything is happening. The movie is expected to release in theatres on December 25, 2013.

Plot Of Nymphomaniac
The plot of Nymphomaniac is that Joe (Gainsbourg), who is a self-diagnosed nymphomaniac, is found by Seligman (Skarsgard) beaten in an alley. Seligman takes her home to care for her and Joe recounts the story of her life, from birth to the age of 50.
Recently, the makers of Nymphomaniac have released a teaser for the first chapter, which states that it is all about how an ordinary bag of chocolate sweets becomes a symbol of sexual victory.
Nymphomania - First Chapter
As Joe and her experienced friend B embark on a train trip, they bet on how many men they can seduce on the ride. The grand prize is a delicious bag of chocolate sweets, and it soon becomes clear to Joe that in order to win, she needs to lure the prey into biting the hook like a skilled fisherman.
Nymphomaniac is set to release on December 25, 2013 in Denmark. The film has been picked up by distributors in several territories including the U.S., Germany, U.K. and even France.
Producer Peter Aalbak Jensen revealed that the film is to be two parts. "We are making two films. It is a big operation. I personally hope that we should be ready for Cannes next year. We will shoot both and edit both - and we want to finish both at the same time." He explained there will be two versions of each film: an explicit cut and a softer cut.
