REIS is a Turkish biographical drama based on the early life of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan
A character is shot and others are punched or slapped - all without visible blood or injury detail. A knife is thrown at a character's face resulting in aftermath sight of blood and subsequent sight of a bloody bandage on the man's cheek. One character repeatedly kicks another, causing blood to leak from the victim's mouth and from a cut on his hairline.
There is infrequent use of the term 'prick', in addition to milder terms including 'bugger', 'shit' and 'bastard'. There is also a single use of the discriminatory term 'gypsy'.
A character is briefly seen tying a tourniquet around his arm and preparing to inject himself with a drug; he is later shown dead, with vomit on his chin, after experiencing a fatal overdose. Other issues include brief references to alcoholism and infrequent non-graphic verbal references to child abuse.
