MPAA Rated PG-13 for disturbing images, sensuality and brief strong language

Sex & Nudity

  • Ishmael and Hatsue have sex twice, with most of their clothes are on. The second time, afraid they will be overheard, Ishmael stifles Hatsue's cries as she has an orgasm. At the time, sexual relationships between people of different races were illegal.

Violence & Gore

  • There is a pretty brutal war scene, some blood and bodies buried in the sand on the beach are shown.


  • Blasphemy is present, the 'f' word once, and other milder obscenities - at one point, a character says "f*ck the b*tch". The insult "gooks" is used a couple times.
