Sex & Nudity

Male and female full frontal nudity throughout. Most of the nudity is in a sexual context.

Much of the dialogue is filled with sexual double-entendres.

There are several sex scenes filmed uncovered from either the side or behind. The sex generally has a clinical feel and is not lewd.

One brief scene includes oral sex shown from the back of the woman's head.

A man fires a phallic-tipped arrow into a woman's vagina.

An older man courts three young men and examines them when they get to his place.

Teenage characters in the film appear in full front and rear nudity. One scene features a man having sex with a teenage girl and another feature a man and a teenage boy getting into a bath together and later asleep in a bed.

Violence & Gore

A woman is thrashed, shackled, and slapped.

Two men are shown hanging on crosses by ropes.

A woman has her hands and feet being chopped off before being beheaded. A couple of cuts in that scene show the actual blows, but each part is shown directly after.

A young boy is stabbed to death in his sleep. The camera lingers over the blood coming from his mouth.



There is a banquet in which one the characters gets drunk.

Two sequences involve people being drugged. In one, an older couple drug a younger couple to perform a sexual test on them. In the other, a man drugs his enemy in order to kidnap his wife.

In at least one scene, an old man is smoking a houkah.

Some of the scenes in the "violence" section might unsettle a few viewers, but the effects and the editing make them less scary than they probably sound.
