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.

Sex & Nudity

We see a man and woman having sex from a distance. Another man is watching through a telescope.We see her riding him but nothing but bare buttocks are visible. These scene is from a long distance, from another building, and not much is seen.

While the sex is in progress another woman enters the room. The woman riding leaves. And the man gets up nude with frontal nudity visible from a distance for fraction of a second.

A man and woman kiss passionately and begin undressing each other but the scene ends before we see anything more. No nudity.

We see a man and a woman passionately kissing, the man is groping her clothed buttocks at the same time. Some homosexual references.

At a night club, a woman's breasts are seen.

Violence & Gore

A man is shot in his back, we see him lying on the ground in a small pool of blood, no detail of his wound. There also is a shot of a woman with a fairly graphic bullet wound in her head and a blood splatter on her face.

A man begins beating another man, punching him repeatedly. The blows are obscured from view but the man spits a small amount of blood. The punches are quite unexpected.

A man beats a woman by punching her and throwing her against a window. Later she has bruises on her face. The entire shot is hidden by a curtain and only silhouettes are seen.

We see a dead man who has had his throat cut and a big hole in his head where his left eye used to be. Flies are in the wounds, all on screen, quite graphic.

A woman finds a dead man lying in a bathtub, covered with blood with his intestines floating in the water, he is twitching slightly. Very graphic but seen from a fair distance, no detail of the wound shown.

A man is 'interrogated' and we see him being forced to listen to screams through headphones (we hear them muffled). A woman is brought in and he is asked if he knows her. He replies that he doesn't and she is shot through the head. We don't see the entry wound but blood splatters on the wall behind her. It drips down the wall as the camera lingers for a second. The shot is very unexpected, making this probably the most shocking moment of the film.

A man aims a gun at another man from a distance. The second man spots him but does not react. He is then shot through the cheek. The wound is very clean (a small hole).The scene is quite intense due to the expressions of the actors. Later he is shown on the floor blood around his head.

Profanity

A couple of uses of "fuck" as well as milder terms such as "bloody" and "damn". sacreligious: Christ, Jesus, Jesus Christ A woman mentions jokingly that she is 'underfucked'.

Several men smoke throughout the film, a couple of others smoke pipes.

Lots of adults consume alcohol throughout the film, usually in a flashback of a party.

The sudden shooting of a woman after a brief interrogation scene is probably the most intense scene in the film.

Other deaths such as the disemboweled body in the bathtub and the man with a slashed throat are quite gruesome and disturbing.
