ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE is a drama about vampires who struggle to cope in the modern world.

Language

There are a number of uses of strong language ('f**k') throughout the film, as well as milder language including 'shit', 'piss' and 'arsehole'.

There are several sequences showing the vampires drinking blood from small glasses, with the camera focussing on their faces and showing blood all over their teeth. The vampires are not shown feeding directly on humans, but a human corpse is seen with large bloody bite marks on the neck. There is also a moderately gory scene when the body is disposed of in a vat of acid, the flesh burning away to reveal the skull.

There is also nudity in a scene showing vampires sleeping next to each other.
