None. A little boy takes a shower and we're inside the shower with him, but we see no nudity.


Injured and wounded people on the ground. It's not graphic or gory because we see little to no blood.

Very intense protesting scenes, made all the more intense because its real.

Innocent citizens are fired upon with bullets and smoke bombs.

A dead body is seen.

A man crashes into a fence, and his bloody body is shown in the hospital.

A major character dies.

Many intense shooting scenes.

A pool of blood, possibly animal, is seen.

Protesters clash with soldiers. It's mostly yelling and shouting. The demonstrators throw rocks at the soldiers. Several times we see soldiers shooting, but we don't see anybody get shot, with one exception: A man is shot to death on camera. We don't see blood or gore, he simply tumbles to the ground, but the scene is emotional because he was a friend of the filmmaker.


One "ass" (in subtitles) and one f-word (not in subtitles, it's spoken aloud)


Some happy, celebratory drinking.


5 Broken Cameras is a brilliant and important documentary, but also one that is violent, intense, fightening, very sad, scary, and not for little kids. Fine for 13+

Recommended MPAA Rating: PG-13, for some violence

Canada:PG (British Columbia) / Denmark:15 (DVD rating) / Finland:K-12 (TV rating) / Singapore:NC-16 / UK:15 / USA:Not Rated
