ALLELUIA is a subtitled Belgian drama about a woman who begins an affair with a conman she meets online.

Violence

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.

Sex

In one scene, a man thrusts into a woman. There are also scenes in which women perform sexual acts on a man.

Disturbing images

In one gory scene, a woman uses a saw to dismember a corpse, cutting off a foot. The aftermath of murders also includes sight of people and rooms covered in blood.

There is some strong language ('f**k'), as well as moderate and mild bad language ('slut', 'shit', 'bastard', 'pissing', 'God'). There are also scenes featuring naked corpses.
