Sex & Nudity

  • There are three sex scenes. While all are framed in such a way that no genitalia are visible, the scenes are prolonged and extremely intense. Bare buttocks are visible on occasion.
  • Women discuss their sex lives in mild detail.
  • A man is shown keeping a mistress.
  • A young girl is the victim of incestuous rape, which is discussed but not shown. She is later implied to be nude, but we only see her bare legs and thighs, and her shoulders.
  • A woman wears sexy (though not revealing) underwear.

Violence & Gore

  • A young man finds blood on a bus seat. His hand and the seat of his pants are shown covered in blood.
  • A woman is shown with splashes of blood on her face. Behind her lies a man who is described as injured, though his wounds are unclear.

Profanity

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Characters smoke and drink wine. Wine is offered with meals. A woman is seen chugging from a wine bottle while she prepares dinner.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Repeated is the image of a woman eating dumplings, often in extreme close-up, which is disturbing, even nauseating to viewers once the secret ingredient of the dumplings is revealed.
  • OFFICIAL BBFC - (18): abortion theme, strong gory images.

Spoilers

The Parents Guide items below may give away important plot points.

Violence & Gore

  • Human fetuses in various stages of development are shown, occasionally up close. Often these fetuses are in the midst of being chopped or otherwise mutilated. At least two are clearly recognizable as human infants.
  • An abortion is performed on screen. Though no genitalia or graphic details are shown, we see something clearly sliding from the woman into a basin of water. Later the products of the abortion are seen very quickly, from a distance.
  • A young girl lies on the street with blood running down her legs after a botched abortion.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • While there is little graphic violence on screen, the film hinges on a deeply disturbing premise of cannibalizing human fetuses, which is discussed throughout, often in detail.
  • A young girl is given a non-professional abortion with no anesthetic. She screams and grimaces in pain throughout the procedure.
