-The camera lingers briefly at women wearing swimsuits.

5/10

There is little if any violence in the movie. However, the threat of a suicide attack is present in a few scenes. And the plot centers around the attempt of a suicidal attacks. The ending is slightly staggering but doesn't show anything.

-In a couple of scenes, we hear gun fire, and people dodge and squat, but nothing is seen. In the other, we hear gun fire and helicopters, and we presume that the military had initiated a search. (Nothing graphic or violent)

-Several angry conversations, in one scene, a man beat the bumper of a car with a wrench breaking it off. The other scenes contain men and women screaming back and forth on each other.

-As stated above, the reference to death with suicidal attacks is present, as it's a major plot. There are discussions of shooting people and executions, but nothing is shown or implied. In a brief scene, a man tells a woman about owning videos that resemble the 'Snuff' films, she becomes upset afterwords.

-A man say "Sarmuta" a derogatory Levantine term best translated as "F**kin' Whore"

-A man freaks out after a near-crash and yells "Kos emmaytkom, rs" Literally: "Your mothers' c*nts, you f**kin' pimps" but it's translated simply as "Motherf**kers"

-Other uses of language such as "Damn," "Crap," "Hell," "Curses upon-" ... And many mild Levantine curses, typically, butchered by the poor translation. But nothing as graphic as the ones mentioned above.

-Several people smoke cigarettes in many scenes.

-In a scene, two men are seen smoking a Hookah.

10/10

-The political and cultural plot may be upsetting, the frequent discussions of occupations and religious/political resistance may proof to be wrenching, especially since none of these conversations occur in a disciplined environment and can turn bitter.

-People discuss violent acts such as explosions, shootings and murder in general, and even discuss a form of 'snuff' movies, a man who sells a few 'off-beat' videos tells a woman that he can give her a video of a "traitor confessing... Before he is gunned down." The act is presumed to be filmed on the video, the woman is disturbed by the fact that such videos exist and discuss it later with another man.

-In a couple of scenes, we hear gun fire, and people dodge and squat, but nothing is seen. In the other, we hear gun fire and helicopters, and we presume that the military had initiated a search. (Nothing graphic or violent)
