RESTREPO is a documentary filmed, over the course of a year, on the front line with a US platoon in one of Afghanistan's most strategically crucial and violent locations. The film was classified '15' for strong language.
The film contains over 50 uses of strong language. These exceed the BBFC's Guidelines at '12A'/'12' where 'the use of strong language (for example, 'fuck') must be infrequent' but are permissible at '15' where the Guidelines state that 'there may be frequent use of strong language'.
The film also contains some moderate violence, including one scene in which a member of the platoon is seen in the distance after he has been shot and killed during a heavy rain of gunfire. However, there is no sight of injury and his comrades move quickly to cover the body as a mark of respect. Additionally, the film contains a single reference to 'crack', but no drugs are seen or used at all.
