HARD TO BE A GOD is a Russian sci-fi drama, filmed in black and white, about a scientist who has been sent to live with a small community on a distant planet which resembles medieval Europe.

Violence

Strong gory images include a body being disembowelled while the heart can still be seen beating. Elsewhere, blood spurts out of a man who has been stabbed in the back, and from an arrow in the back of a woman's neck. There is also sight of dead bodies hanging from nooses, as well as sight of severed heads.

Strong violence includes very bloody stabbings, a restrained man's exposed buttocks being poked at with a large metal tool - implying torture, and a scene implying a man's eyes are being gouged out.

Nudity

There is frequent male and female full frontal nudity, occasionally in a sexual context, including sight of a woman's labia as she lies face down on a bed, and a man touching his flaccid penis as he mumbles to himself.

The film also includes characters vomiting, urinating and smearing snot, blood, mud or excrement on themselves.

There is sight of a donkey's erect penis, and a wood carving depicting a couple having sex, including a carving of an erect penis.

There is occasional use of strong language ('f**k').
