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

Sex & Nudity

  • One scene takes place in a city bath in which we can see dozens of completely naked women, including Iya and Masha. This scene is essential in telling the story, as a bodily abnormality of a character that drives an aspect of the plot is revealed.
  • Iya is having sex with Nikolay Ivanovich while Masha is lying next to them.
  • Iya takes off her pants and underwear and lies next to Masha in bed. Then Nikolay Ivanovic gets on Iya and they have sex while Masha is lying next to them. This scene is more disturbing and intense than erotic. It may be heavy for some viewers.

Violence & Gore

  • Iya throws Sasha out of the car and beats him. Iya is also breaking a man's arm off-screen. Not too violent.
  • The tram that Masha is in is crushing a tall girl. Masha leans over and sees the tall girl under the tram. It is not gory or frightening but very intense and depressive because of that the long girl is first thought of Iya.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Masha threatens Iya and Nikolay Ivanovich that she'll tell on them in NKVD, then she forces them to have sex so she can raise the child that Iya will born for her. The "threesome" scene is very uncomfortable to watch.
