Sex implied; may be either concensual or rape. Nothing explicit is shown on screen sex-wise.

A sword fight shown from two different perspectives. A charcter is killed; may be either murder or suicide. The film is in black and white and the swords piercing human bodies are not graphic or detailed in any way. If your kids have seen pretty much any modern action movie they have seen more intense violence than they will see in this movie.

A character references selling a sword to buy liquor.

The entire movie is intense revolving around a death and possible rape. However most of the violence/sexual content is implied rather than shown directly.

The film explores some serious themes, including people's inner dark sides and desires, and people losing their faith in mankind.

Rashomon was released prior to the formation of the MPAA, and would likely be PG-13 today.

Suggested MPAA Rating: PG-13 for thematic material including a rape, violence, and some language
