ELEFANTE BLANCO - WHITE ELEPHANT is a subtitled Argentinian drama about two priests working to help the people of a Buenos Aires slum. It is rated 15 for strong language, sex, drug use and bloody injury.

The film contains frequent strong language (uses of 'f**k', 'motherf**ker' and 'c**ksucker').

There is a sex scene featuring breast nudity and implied thrusting. Although there is no graphic detail, the scene is prolonged.

The film shows people smoking joints, youngsters engaging in solvent abuse, and dealers cooking drugs on an industrial scale. All these activities occur in the grim setting of the slum and are portrayed as seedy and dangerous rather than glamorous. The danger is reinforced by scenes of drug-related violence, including bloody injury in their aftermath.

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.
