The talk of Cannes today isn’t even in the festival: It’s Lars von Trier’s latest, Nymphomaniac, which stars Charlotte Gainsbourg (left) as a woman recounting her erotic experiences after surviving a vicious beating. (Uma Thurman, Stellan Skarsgård, and Shia LaBeouf costar.) Von Trier being famously unstinting, the film depicts unsimulated sex—but according to one of the film’s producers, Louise Vesth, who spoke at the festival today, it will actually be a high-tech visual effect, where images of stunt doubles having sex will be digitally imposed onto images of the more famous actors. Naturally, it’s been the buzz of the Internet all day. For my part, I think the most boundary-crossing detail isn’t the F/X, but the release date: The film is slated to come out in von Trier’s native Denmark on Christmas Day. God Jul, as the Danes say.
