Sex & Nudity

  • Various scenes of naked children and babies (though this is from the cultural standpoint, not anything more explicit.) It is played for laughs on a few occasions. A male toddler's genitalia are shown in one scene.
  • A major section of the 2nd half of the movie is that a lot of rich men want to marry the main character due to her beauty. Her father calls for this as well.
  • Two scenes of women breast-feeding infants, one with a close-up shot of the mother's bare breast and nipple. The scene is played with some humor as the woman is surprised to find herself producing milk.

Violence & Gore

  • Only one scene of bloodshed is shown and that is very slight - a scrape from falling downhill. The heroine calls attention to the blood and bandages it.
  • A man falls down a hill, but is revealed to be OK.
  • Scrapes and slight bruises from rough-horsing/playing.
  • Some arrows are shot at people but they do not hit anyone.

Profanity

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Various men are seen as drunk.
  • An alcoholic beverage (most likely sake [a form of rice wine]) is consumed by multiple individuals.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • A young girl is almost tackled by a boar but is saved.
  • A woman hears herself insulted by a group of drunk men. The lighting becomes dark as she runs away, knocking over things.
  • Towards the end the tone of the film becomes quite sad and downbeat.
  • WARNING: Story ending spoilers below.
  • The ending can definitely upset any age of audience, though its not as upsetting as "Grave Of the Fireflies." The film itself is for a more mature audience.
  • A mature 11 or 12 year old should be able to watch this, though the overall theme may be a little over their heads.
