She plays a self-diagnosed nymphomaniac in the new film from Lars von Trier, which also stars Shia LaBeouf, Uma Thurman and Willem Dafoe.

BERLIN -- The latest still released from Lars von Trier's hotly-anticipated Nymphomaniac shows Charlotte Gainsbourg's sexy side.

The shot, in which a topless Gainsbourg is embraced by two half-naked men, should further whet the appetite of von Trier fans for his erotic epic.

Gainsbourg stars in Nymphomaniac as Joe, a 50-year-old self-diagnosed nymphomaniac looking back at her erotic life. The film, which also stars Stellan Skarsgard, Shia LaBeouf, Jamie Bell, Uma Thurman and Willem Dafoe, is planned as two full-length features and will be released in both soft- and hard-core versions.

But executive producer Peter Aalbæk Jensen, speaking to THR at the Berlin International Film Festival, said von Trier's first rough cut of the film was seven and a half hours long. "It's almost enough for three films, and it's all good. I don't know what we'll cut," Jensen said.

Sales group TrustNordisk will give buyers at the European Film Market in Berlin a first taste of Nymphomaniac with a closed screening of a promo for the film.
