DANS LA MAISON - IN THE HOUSE is a subtitled French language drama in which a sixteen-year-old boy insinuates himself into the life and home of a school friend. The boy documents his experiences and fantasies in a series of essays that attract the interest of his literature teacher. The film is rated 15 for strong language and sex and a scene of hanging.

There are seven subtitled uses of strong language ('f**k'), one of which is sexualised. There is also some mild and moderate bad language, including subtitled uses of the terms 'ass', 'asshole', 'bitches', 'shit' and 'prick'.

There is one scene of strong sex involving a married couple. The woman straddles her husband as he sits on their bed and thrusts into her. The couple appear to be naked, but other than a fleeting glimpse of the woman's bare breasts, all detail is concealed by thighs and arms. In another scene the sixteen-year-old principal character is seen in bed with a mature woman. Although it is implied that they have had sex, the scene includes no nudity nor sexual activity.

In a fantasy sequence a youth is seen hanging from the ceiling by his school tie, with his feet dangling a few inches from the floor. The scene includes no detail that is novel or which might usefully be copied.

A scene set in a gallery includes some sexual images within works of art. Examples include a painting of four penises arranged in the shape of a Swastika, inflatable sex dolls displayed in a glass case, and three freestanding sex dolls that respectively have the faces of Hitler, Stalin and Mao.

No-one younger than 15 may see a 15 rated film in the cinema. No-one younger than 15 may rent or buy a 15 rated video or DVD.
