The content of this page was created directly by users and has not been screened or verified by IMDb staff.
Since the beliefs that parents want to instill in their children can vary greatly, we ask that, instead of adding your personal opinions about what is right or wrong in a film, you use this feature to help parents make informed viewing decisions by describing the facts of relevant scenes in the title for each one of the different categories: Sex and Nudity, Violence and Gore, Profanity, Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking, and Frightening/Intense Scenes.

A man mimes rape (fully clothed) with his mother and the woman kisses her grown son suggestively several times throughout the film. It is implied that there might be an incestuous relationship between them, though we never see anything more than this. A woman suggestively pulls on a man's belt, making him uncomfortable.

Sword fights and poisoning. A woman slaps her son on the face, but he threatens her with his sword. A man mistakenly stabs his sweetheart's father by taking him for his uncle. A woman drowns. Two men are beheaded offscreen.

Social drinking and revelry. A man forces wine down another man's throat in a violent act.

A man is visited by the ghost of his father who tells him about his own murder by the ghost's brother. A man argues with his sweetheart and ends up shouting and shoving her against a wall. A man and his mother are involved in an intense argument (see Sex & Nudity above). Two protesting men are hauled to the block where they are beheaded offscreen. After a sword fighting competition goes wrong, four people are left dead in front of a crowd of spectators.
