  • A kiss scene in the beach 01:16:00
  • A small boy in a tribal village is seen naked from the waist down, his penis is barely visible. But this scene is not explicit in any way.

Violence & Gore

  • Two men try to escape, both are shot and die.
  • A character is slapped and characters are mistreated and tortured by Japanese soldiers.

  • The Japanese colonel is implied to commit suicide if the bridge isn't completed on time.


Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Two characters share a drink in a couple scenes.

  • The climax can be intense.
  • The ending can be tragic to some.
