As a man gets up from bed and puts his clothes on, there are several glimpses of his penis and pubic areas. This was not in the 110 minute version I saw.

In a flashback to a concentration camp, many prisoners are shown fully nude, for an extended time. Lucia is shown naked fully in another flashback scene.

A man dances in a jock strap, showing his buttocks numerous times.

Two concentration camp men prisoners are shown having sex. The others in the cell watch as one is thrusting while the receiver is masturbating. But we only see the naked buttocks of the man thrusting and the hand motion of the one masturbating. The camera lingers on the act.

A man puts two fingers inside a woman's mouth and pushes them in and out as if simulating oral sex.

In one scene, Lucia is forced to give the fully clothes man oral sex. He pushes her face into his crotch.

A sex scene of the woman on top of the man having sex. She's wearing a long sweater and he's dressed. While on top of him, she reaches down to unzip his pants and put him in her but the only nudity shown is of the lower part of her buttocks briefly.

A man closes a door so a woman can't escape, they fight on the floor and he hits her a couple of times.

A severed head is presented in a box to a woman, we don't see it in full.

A woman purposefully smashes a bottle in order for a man to walk in the glass with bare feet. She puts her hand under his bleeding foot as if to help and the man stamps his foot down so she gets cut by the glass.

A man hits a woman in the face a few times.

A man is shot at through a window and the bullet hits his hand.

B*tch is said a couple of times. One use of wh*re and b*stard.

Casual smoking and drinking.
