JACQUOT DE NANTES is a French biopic, from 1991, exploring the childhood and adolescence of Jacques Demy, and its influence on his filmmaking.

Language

Language includes use of 'damn', 'hell', 'God', 'Christ' and 'tart'.

Sex

A mother and father begin kissing as they turn out the lights and pull the covers over themselves in bed, implying sex is about to take place. In another scene, two young boys look at women's lingerie in a shop window. There is also a painting of a nude man and woman lying with their genitals facing each other, but the image is not explicitly sexual.

Nudity

There is brief nudity when three young boys pull their shorts down and refer to 'comparing sizes'. There is also a scene in which two boys take their clothes off in front of a giggling girl. The nudity is non-sexual and presented as part of innocent childhood games.

During WWII a woman refers to a rumour that the Nazis are raping women and cutting the hands off children, but there is no further detail or visuals. In one scene, young children find a dead woman's body in her flat. There are historical uses of discriminatory language, including 'gypsy', 'kraut' and 'negro'. However, the work as a whole does not encourage or endorse using such terms.
