JACK STRONG is a Polish language Cold War spy thriller, with English subtitles, based on the true story of a Polish Army Colonel who became an agent for the CIA in the 1970s.

Language

Strong language ('f**k') appears fairly frequently throughout the film. There are also some milder terms, including 'bitch', 'bastard' and 'bullshit'.

Violence

The strong injury detail occurs when a character commits suicide by shooting himself in the head. Blood splatters onto the wall behind him. This strong bloody image is shown only briefly.

There is some strong threat as a man is interrogated and then told he is to be killed by being thrown into an industrial furnace. We see him being dragged towards it, screaming.

There are some passing drug references when the main character's son tells him he has "shot up kompot", and explains that this is a heroin-like drug made from poppies. There are no scenes of drug use.
