Explicit portrayals of sex between persons of the same gender are featured in the film.

The film contains a sexual scene between two men where vigorous thrusting is clearly visible. This is presented in the form of a pornographic clip that is being viewed by one of the characters on a laptop screen.

Other scenes of homosexual activities are depicted in the film, including kissing and implied oral sex.


The film also contains nudity, where depictions of female upper body nudity are visible.

Strong and realistic depictions of violence and gore are featured in the film, albeit justified by context.

The central theme of the film revolves around Justine, a vegetarian, who gradually discovers her cannibalistic tendency after she is forced to consume meat.

The strongest scene depicts the main character nibbling on a human finger, leaving behind blood stains around her mouth.

In another scene, Justine wakes up next to a dead man whose thigh is partially chewed through with raw flesh and bone exposed.

As these scenes depict gory details of injuries, they would be more appropriate for a strictly adult audience.

There is the use of the expletive "f**k" in the film throughout.

'Raw' is a French drama that revolves around Justine, a bright student, a believer in animal rights and a vegetarian, who has just enrolled into a veterinary school. Her journey into young adulthood soon descends into an unravelling of a dark secret about herself and her family, as she begins to experience a disquieting yearning for meat.
