SELF/LESS is a thriller about a wealthy man dying of cancer who pays for an operation which transfers his consciousness into the body of a young man.

Violence

Scenes of moderate violence include hand-to-hand combat punches, kicks and an elbow blow, with a couple of suggested bone breaks. Blows are all brief and without injury detail, with a focus on escape from life-threatening situations. There are also some undetailed shootings and sight of a man set on fire.

Sex

A woman undresses in front of a man, removing her top but playfully covering her breasts with her arms. Later, in the distance, we see her jumping on top of a man on a bed with her breast seen in silhouette, establishing that the couple is about to have sex.

Language

One use of strong language ('f**k') as well as milder terms including 'son of a bitch', 'shit', 'asshole', 'hell' and 'bastard'.

The film also contains some gun threat, droplets of blood on a computer screen after a sick man coughs, and references to cancer and death.
