Violence & Gore

  • Brief depiction of a woman with her throat slashed, gushing blood.
  • An old woman agrees to have sex with a man. No violence.


  • 3 Uses of "fuck"
  • The word 'whore' is used repeatedly (not completely unexpected considering the subject of the movie).

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Adult smoking. People drink saki.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Young children are sexually abused. Very traumatic
  • A woman's complaints -- of being presently hurt by someone -- falls on deaf ears. Even the eyewitnesses delay responding.
  • The first scene that includes internal fellatio is shockingly sudden, so it is visually unavoidable.
  • A violent act occurs that's arguably the most graphic of all time. (Not even close, considering modern horror stories, but it is pretty ugly).
