NEXT TIME I'LL AIM FOR THE HEART is a subtitled French drama, based on a true story from the 1970s, in which a series of women are killed after being picked up whilst hitchhiking.

Injury detail

Blood is seen at the scene of crimes, although with no detail of wounds. Blood is also seen on a car windscreen after a driver deliberately crashes into a scooter. In one scene, a man is seen pulling barbed wire around his arm, with blood dribbling down his skin.

Language

There are occasional uses of strong language ('f**k'). Milder bad language includes uses of 'shit', 'damn', 'bastard', 'ass', 'screwed' and 'crap'.

Nudity

A woman is seen lying in bed with her bare breasts exposed after spending the night with a man. Her bare breasts are seen again as she embraces and kisses the man while he dresses.

Sex

A line drawing of an ejaculating penis is seen in a telephone booth. A man refers to his moustache as a 'thigh tickler' in an implied joke about oral sex. A couple of men are seen stroking their bare stomachs and clothed bottoms in a sexualised way, in order to attract attention.

Other issues include discriminatory language and references, including uses of 'fags', 'faggot' and 'ass bandits' as police observe an area known for male prostitution.

There is also a use of 'coon' as a man abuses a passer-by. None of this language is condoned by the work as a whole
