  • Two men briefly discuss sex, nongraphically.

Violence & Gore

  • A man hits his son in the face.
  • A man hits a dog. The man is then knocked to the ground by his grandfather for hitting the dog.
  • A woman finds several corpses in a field.
  • People talk about how Jewish villagers were killed by Nazis.
  • A man commits suicide, off-screen, in a bathtub; he is later found there. The blood that comes from his wrists has colored the water red. (The scene is peaceful and not frightening).


  • 1 use of bullshit
  • The Grandfather's dog is constantly refered to as a "Seeing-eye bitch." A few profanities in a foreign language, but nothing too bad.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The mix between scenes of great comedy and the horrible scene in which a woman finds corpses in a field may frighten some viewers.
