NO is a Chilean drama about an advertising executive working on the 'No' media campaign against General Pinochet's regime during Chile's 1988 national referendum. It is rated 15 for strong language.
The film contains around twenty uses of strong language ('f**k') in subtitled dialogue. None of the uses are particularly aggressive or sexualised and they all occur during conversations between competitive and battling media executives. There is also some mild bad language (eg 'shit', 'crap', 'bitch', 'asshole', 'bastards').
There are some scenes showing clashes between security forces and protestors at a 'No' campaign rally. The protestors are baton-charged, manhandled and arrested. Real archive footage is mixed with the dramatised scenes to show the impact on actual protestors, including some brief news footage of a burns victim.
No-one younger than 15 may see a 15 rated film in the cinema. No-one younger than 15 may rent or buy a 15 rated video or DVD.
