HOLY MOTORS is a French film with English subtitles. It follows the progress of Monsieur Oscar, a mysterious actor-like character who spends a day moving from one role to the next, apparently traversing through a number of different lives and taking in a range of human experiences.

Nudity

A man removes his trousers, revealing his erect penis.

There is a strong scene of sexual activity. However, it features no nudity because it involves two actors in catsuits who are being filmed in order to provide motion capture footage for an animated special effects sequence. They move as if engaged in sexual intercourse, in a variety of positions, at times licking and kissing each other, but remain fully clothed throughout.

There are several sequences featuring strong, bloody violence, including a finger being bitten off and some large gushes of blood as a man is stabbed in the neck. Another scene features some blood as the bodies of people who have jumped or fallen from a height are shown lying face down on the pavement.

The film also includes a single use of strong language and several uses of milder bad language.
