Sex & Nudity

An adulterous relationship is presented.

Violence & Gore

There are three deaths in the film. Each occurs out of the frame.



Characters smoke throughout the film. Social drinking is present.

This work is a film noir, so murder and suspense are present throughout. Overall, a very mature and taut thriller, even if murders occur off-screen.
