Sex & Nudity

  • A man watches a (real) clip of Japanese porn. It is about 5 seconds.

  • A man's bare buttocks are briefly seen after he has a shower.
  • A nude man and woman have energetic sex for 52 seconds. There is a separate shot of her breasts and buttocks. The rest focuses on shoulders up or is seen from a distance with not too much detail.
  • A teenage boy removes a girl's underwear (she is still fully clothed). He then exposes her right breast and sucks on it for several seconds.

  • A man briefly masturbates while watching a clothed woman on TV. Only chest up shown.

Violence & Gore

  • A man attempts suicide by cutting his wrist in a couple scenes, plenty of blood is seen on the ground.
  • Stock footage of disasters like 9/11 are shown for effect in one scene.
  • A man commits suicide by jumping off a building. He lands on a car, startling several nearby people, but this isn't very graphic.
  • A man rips out several of another man's teeth with a hammer as a form of torture. There is plenty of blood seen and the act is briefly seen up close. Later, he's seen with a very bloody rag in his mouth.
  • A man gets into a fight with several other men, hitting them with a hammer while they hit him with several blunt weapons. The men are seen in various stages of pain from blunt force trauma. At one point, the lone man is stabbed in the back and beaten up. He's seen covered in blood, and later with bloody bandages.
  • A man attempts to rip out another man's teeth (in revenge for the man doing it to him) but gets stopped before he can. He then hits the man in the head with a bat, and he's seen in great pain. The attempted victim then threatens to cut of the others hand for molesting a woman.
  • A man is stabbed to death with a broken disk by another man, this is hard to see as it's dimly lit, but it's still clear what happens.
  • A man's severed hand is seen briefly.
  • A man gets into a fight with another man, he's violently thrown about a room, against several glass objects. Eventually, the second man is stabbed in the ear with a pair of scissors, destroying his eardrum. Blood is seen leaking out of his ear while he attempts to stab the first man in the neck. He's then shot in the head before he can kill the first man.
  • A man is seen completely covered in blood after another man is shot and killed in front of him.
  • A man shoots himself in the head, this is graphically seen with lots of blood and a bullet wound on his head.
  • Infrequent but very strong, however there are two scenes which are quite graphic but they are also doesn´t last for more than just a couple of seconds and the worst bits are not shown.

  • 8 uses of 'fuck', 7 of 'bastard', 6 of 'asshole', 5 of 'son of a bitch', 3 of 'dickshit', and 1 of 'dick', 'cocksucker', and 'shit'.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • A woman takes some sort of drug, which turns people around her into giant ants.
  • The opening scene shows the main character in police custody for drunkeness. Other than this there is little to no drug use.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Even though its not as violent, it can be more uncomfortable than Batoru rowaiaru (2000) at times.
  • A scene of a man having his teeth extracted using a hammer which is really intense.
  • A scene of a man cutting his own tongue using scissors.
  • The entire film is very dark and depressing and the violent scenes could be very hard for some people to watch.

Spoilers

The Parents Guide items below may give away important plot points.

Sex & Nudity

  • At one point, the female lead tells the male lead that one day, he'll just have to "give it to her" after he attempts to sexually assault her. Shortly after she tells him that she might try to resist him, but she instructs him not to stop no matter what. This scene, as well as many other aspects of the dynamic between the two main characters is incredibly bizarre, and can be quite confusing and uncomfortable at times, especially on repeated viewings.

Violence & Gore

  • The protagonist cuts off his own tongue with a pair of scissors. We hear him screaming in agony as he does this, there's a very painful look on his face and the act is off-screen, but we see him cut with the scissors and then we hear some realistic noises and he coughs out plenty of blood as a result. This scene is very intense and disturbing, but also disgusting enough to make squeamish viewers and even someone with a strong stomach squirm.
