This film is quite violent and can be very graphic at times, although the main issue is the disturbing thematic material throughout;

A man shoots himself in the mouth. Blood and brain matter splatter onto the wall behind him and he slumps to the floor.

A man and woman shoot at each other. It is unclear where she is shot but blood flies onto the wall behind her and she slumps to the floor. The man is shot in the forehead, but only a bloody gash and a damaged eye is seen.

A badly beaten man who has been tortured is untied by a woman; he kicks her in the stomach and he smashes a window. Another man subdues him and the tortured man holds a piece of broken glass in his hand, cutting it.

A man is shot in the leg and thrown into a hole in the ground. It is clear that he survives.

A man finds a heavily decayed body; a priest then says that the man confessed to 16 child murders.
