CUL-DE-SAC is a thriller, from 1966, in which two wounded criminals make their way to an island where they seek refuge at a remote castle occupied by a middle-aged man and his young French wife.

Language

There is infrequent moderate bad language ('bitch', 'whores') and milder terms including 'bastard', 'bloody', 'shit' and 'son of bitch'.

Violence

Scenes of violence include a woman being slapped and hit across her bottom and thighs with a belt, resulting in visible marks on her thighs. A man is punched and there is a shooting, both resulting in brief sight of blood.

Nudity

There is brief female breast and buttock nudity as a young woman looks from her bedroom window and runs across the beach towards the sea.
