THE CLIMBER is an Italian crime film, from 1975, about a young gangster making his way through the criminal hierarchy.
There are several scenes in which men are shot, stabbed or beaten. Some of the shootings are accompanied by impact wounds and bloodspurts, and there are also scenes showing bloodstained bodies.
There is one clear use of very strong language ('c**t') in a scene in which a man orders other men to remove a woman from a room. There is also some strong language ('f**k') and milder bad language (for example, 'piss', 'son of a bitch', 'shit', 'bastard', 'balls', 'asshole', 'goddamn', 'damn', 'Jesus', 'God', 'hell').
In one scene a man and a woman have sex and the man kisses the woman's exposed breasts.
There is a scene in which a man snorts cocaine. The film also contains scenes in which drug packages are shown, and in which illegal drugs are briefly tasted to assess their purity.
There are brief scenes showing bare-breasted women in nightclubs, and also a scene of non-sexualised male nudity in which a man takes a shower.
