Full frontal nudity with moderate detail is shown, albeit justified by context, and not excessive.

The film contains a scene of female full frontal nudity, where a woman takes off her underwear and stands fully naked in front of a man.

The film portrays the protagonist's psychotic tendencies and depicts the injuries she inflicts on her victims: she removes their eyeballs, severs their vocal chords and holds them captive in a secluded barn.

However, the violence involved in these acts is implied, and only the aftermath of the injuries is depicted.

In a stronger scene, the camera lingers on a close-up shot of her female victim's face, where surgical stitches along the victim's eyes and throat can be seen, as blood oozes out from the fresh wounds.

In another scene, a gaping hole in a man's back is shown, implying that he was tortured in some way.

'The Eyes of My Mother' is a black-and-white film revolving around a reticent woman, Francisca. An incident in Francisca's childhood shatters the idyll of her family life and traumatizes the young girl deeply. However, it also awakened unique curiosities within Francisca, which take on a dark form in her later years.

There are numerous disturbing scenes throughout the film.

Although depictions of bloodletting are kept to a minimum, there is a sense of threat throughout the film which is heightened by several disturbing depictions of the victims' suffering.
