Um, Merry Christmas?

In this latest teaser clip from Lars von Trier's forthcoming sex epic "Nymphomaniac," Jamie Bell's K presents Charlotte Gainsbourg's Joe -- or, as he calls her, Fido -- with a whip for Christmas.

Displaying the opposite of joy, Joe proceeds to lay the whip on the sofa, pull up her dress (we repeat, watch this away from the office), and bend herself over the arm of the sofa. As for what comes next, we'll have to wait and see.

Just like every other "Nymphomaniac" "appetizer," this one, taken from "Chapter 6: The Eastern and the Western Church (The Silent Duck)," blurs the line between art-house and porn. But we suppose it makes sense that there's at least one holiday reference in the two-part film, which opens Christmas Day in Denmark. It's just not a terribly festive one.


As announced earlier this week, U.S. audiences will be able to satisfy their curiosity this coming spring, when "Nymphomaniac: Part One" is slated to premiere -- first on VOD on March 6, and then in theaters on March 21. The second installment, from which the above clip hails, will arrive on VOD on April 3, then on the big screen April 18.
