Sex & Nudity


Violence & Gore

There are 2 scenes where men are flogged, but only reaction shots are shown- there is only the small suggestion of the blood incurred by the flogging as shown from the front of the victim. *** spolier alert**** There are 3 deaths- one by falling from a height, one from an accidental fall and also a hanging- but again, only the victim's feet are shown on that.




The only "intense" scenes are the floggings and they don't last very long.
