ARABIAN NIGHTS: VOLUME 2, THE DESOLATE ONE is a Portuguese drama about various people living in difficult situations in Portugal.

Language

There is a single use of very strong language ('c**t'). There are also multiple uses of strong language ('f**k'). Other bad language includes use of 'bastard', 'bitch', 'son of a bitch', 'piss' and 'screwed'.

Sex

A man claims that a wife's duty is to provide 'puss' and a woman discusses how she lost her virginity having kept her 'flower intact' until she met a man who was 'firm but gentle'.

There are also strong visual sex references as we see a woman's hand resting over a man's flaccid genitals as they lie on a bed. There is blood visible on the man's pubic hair and later some blood is also seen on a naked woman's inner thighs, implying that the woman lost her virginity to the man.

A naked woman is seen sitting astride a man's chest.

A couple of young boys spy on implied sex through a peep hole and later draw a rough line drawing of a bare breasted woman with a penis penetrating between her bare legs.

Nudity

There are several scenes of both natural and sexualised full female nudity.

Other issues include suicide references, including discussion of a suicide pact leading to a couple being left dead in their flat for days.

Drug references include comment about a woman being a drug dealer and her boyfriend being 'hooked' on drugs.

A man's body is found with blood on his shirt.
