Sex & Nudity

  • There are a few sex scenes with visible thrusting and sound effects, male/female and female/female, with breasts, chests, and butts visible. These are relatively short but emphasized as relevant to several plot lines.
  • Other nudity includes very brief full frontal nudity of a man changing clothes and of a woman entering the ocean. Rear views are longer. Some thong bathing suits show butt cheeks.
  • One sex scene is implied to be painful and perhaps coerced. A spent condom is seen on the floor.
  • Actual and suspected infidelity plays a role in the plot.

Violence & Gore

  • After a brief fight, a man is brutally murdered with a knife. A lot of blood is seen.
  • One character kills another and then suicides, with a pistol. We see blood splatter from the head of the first and onto a table from the second.
  • A severe traffic accident is bloody.
  • We see a character suicide by blunt force trauma, and then blood pooling beneath the corpse.
  • Two men fight. One suffers a heart attack.


  • Not much, as English subtitled.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • One character is kept in varying degrees of mental fuzziness for an extended time with medication.
  • Drug trafficking is among the crimes imputed to a family.
  • Drinking in social situations and at clubs is shown, as is some cigarette and cigar smoking. A man is reminded that doctors told him not to smoke.
  • One character appears to have snorted cocaine.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • All the scenes of violence are presented in a serious and intense way. Some relationships are severely strained.
