Sex & Nudity

8/10

A man and woman have violent sex: She sits on a map table and bares one thigh, rubs his bare chest with her hands, grabs him by the throat and then by the hair, then caresses his lips with a finger and he grabs her by the throat, sits her back farther on the table, and we can see that he is thrusting below the shot as she moans; he picks her up and slams her against a wall and they both grab each other's hair as he thrusts and he rips off her bodice and we see her bare breasts as he bends her over the table and thrusts until they start arguing about war and she angrily pulls a sword and places it to his throat, but allows him to leave; the man, now nude, holds a cloth in front of his crotch and we see him in a side view with bare chest, abdomen, buttocks, thighs and legs.

Slaves chained to wooden cylinders make them rotate as they walk and cause oil to spew into the sea and onto enemy boats; the men then throw pots of fire with hammer-throw action and ignite the oil (one man catches fire and falls into the sea) and blow up several ships to fill the screen with fire as men abandon their ships.
