Sex & Nudity

  • A man lays down a sword between his side of the bed and his wife's and promises he won't cross over, only she can.
  • A married couple is shown in bed together, fully clothed, on their wedding night. The woman leans over and kisses her husband, and they kiss passionately for a few seconds. Sex is implied, though not at all shown.
  • A man is dips his wife down onto a bed, fully clothed. They quietly exchange comments and kiss intermittently. He is seen starting to slide off the straps of her top, but no nudity is shown (only her bare shoulder, covered by his hand) and as they kiss, they are interrupted before anything happens.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The main character dies, but this is implied, not shown, and he is later shown again singing/dancing because his "life" and "death" is of a symbolic nature. This could be disturbing before you realize how the film is structured
