Sex & Nudity

  • In the middle of the movie, a man receives a call and is in bed with a woman whose breasts are exposed. In the second half of the movie, a party with Nazi soldiers is shown that had several women with exposed breasts. A man is shown in a room with a half-naked woman whose breasts are exposed. All of these scenes are very brief and non-sexual.

Violence & Gore

  • Most of the violence takes place off-screen; however, there are instances of graphic violence throughout the movie.
  • Soviet troops attack German positions with sub-machineguns, tanks and infantry. Some of the battle scenes are intense despite there aren't a lot of'em.
  • An old man is hanged, due to the new order that no one should retreat. This scene is fairly intense.
  • One man shoots himself in the mouth and blood splats all over the wall.
  • A soldier is shot through the head and blood sprays out. A few other people are shot, but not too graphically.
  • In a make-shift hospital, amputated limbs are seen in a bowl on the floor. Blood is seen everywhere.
  • Many of the main characters shoot themselves and their wives, however this is either done off screen, or when the camera pans away from the shooting. Shots are heard.
  • The bodies of two characters who shot themselves are carried away while their children look on. The children do not realise what has happened.
  • A character is shot, this is bloodless although we do see the character collapse to the floor.

Profanity

  • Almost none; a few minor cuss words (since the film is in German, the words can be seen on the subtitles).
  • 2 uses of Nigger/Nigga, 1 use of fuck, and 1 use of s*** intended to be the pronunciation of some German words heard in the film.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • There is heavy drinking during the movie. It is implied that a man is snorting cocaine. Smoking occurs sporadically throughout the film.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The whole movie is extremely intense. The scene where the man shoots himself comes out of nowhere and is very disturbing. One scene when a group of children are killed with cyanide pills is the pinnacle of the films disturbing nature. The amputation scenes may be extremely brutal to some (there are two or three but one is off screen). On two of them you can see the surgeon using knives to cut through their arms or legs and since morphine is scarce they did it without any anesthetics (they scream in pain and one screams for his mother).
