Sex & Nudity

  • Multiple scenes include upper body frontal female nudity, many of which are sexual. Vulva only visible slightly in one scene momentarily, as the majority of nudity is limited by angle and lighting.
  • A woman is fully nude in front of another woman, makes her touch her labia using her fingers (not visualized), and she quickly flicks her hand away.
  • There is also a scene late in the film in which naturalistic full frontal nudity is intermittently but clearly visualized, taking place outside in daylight.
  • At a dining table a heavily pregnant woman bares a breast and squeezing the teat, expresses milk.
  • A young woman licks a religious figurine, then uses it as a dildo between the legs of another woman, stimulating her to orgasm.

Violence & Gore

  • Benedetta has a vision of snakes attacking her and Jesus Christ cutting them into pieces.
  • A group of men flagellate themselves, leaving bloody scars on their backs.
  • In a dream, a man is beheaded and others are stabbed with a sword. Exaggerated and bloody.
  • A woman's hand is pierced once by an arrow, the second time by the nail on the cross. The second time blood can be seen on both of her hands.
  • An elder woman's left chest is bruised. Redness and what seems like scars can be seen when she is fully nude.
  • A woman flagellates herself (graphic)


  • A woman calls another woman a "lying bitch" and a "whore."
  • A nun exclaims "Sweet Jesus" during illicit sex (effectively a profanity).
