Sex & Nudity


Brief shot of breasts. Throughout an entire scene, we see a man's penis and butt. In a post-coital scene, we see a man and a woman caressing each other (the woman's butt is seen, and she rubs his crotch--not seen). In another post-coital scene, we see a man caress a woman (no nudity). Breasts and vagina are seen for a split-second. A woman's butt is seen. Strong sexual themes, but no actual sex shown--a woman cheats on her husband and uses sex to move herself upward in society.

Violence & Gore


A man is killed by a blow to the head with a bottle. A couple is killed in a house explosion at the end of the film. A bombing raid is shown. A woman smashes a bottle over a man's head (it kills him). A woman leaves the gas on for an oven, and blows herself (and presumably her husband) up. Some wartime explosions.



1 scene on a train where the F word is said several times(about 10 times give or take) most if not all uses were sexual. This scene is in English.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking


Basically all characters smoke and drink, and there is a doctor addicted to morphine (we see him shooting up).
