Suggested MPAA rating: R for sexual content, nudity and some bloody images

Significant nudity, both male and female, often full frontal, but most of the time it is in underwater swimming sequences. This includes both school age children and adolescents.

There is an implied masturbation scene.

There is a lovemaking scene, which actually is spaced out into several short scenes. In one shot, filmed from extremely far away, the couple is seen making love in an inlet, with water splashing aginst them and the rocks. The woman squeals and we cannot be sure if it's because of the water splashing against them or if she is having an orgasm.

There is a childbirth scene.

There is a breast feeding scene. The son is nude for the rest of the film doing what toddlers do on deserted islands.

Some blood is shown. A man is briefly shown getting his head chopped off from native islanders.

An elderly man gets drunk, which leads to his death.

Young male holds a skull that he found in his hand, then drops it .

A crab crawls out of the mouth of a dead body.

Later, the skeleton of that dead body is shown, years after it has completely decayed into bones. The young man who finds the skeleton compares the bones of the dead man's hand with his own hand.

A character is threatened by a shark.
