ALLELUIA is a subtitled Belgian drama about a woman who begins an affair with a conman she meets online.
There are two prolonged scenes in which women are strangled and beaten to death by another woman. In both cases, the killing is preceded by a scene of sexual activity between the victim and a man, triggering the murderous attack. In another scene, a woman is attacked with an axe, resulting in strong injury detail. There is also a scene in which a woman attacks a young girl.
In one scene, a man thrusts into a woman. There are also scenes in which women perform sexual acts on a man.
