THE SIEGE OF JADOTVILLE is a dramatisation of events in the Congo in 1961, when Irish UN peacekeeping forces came under attack from mercenaries deployed by mining companies operating in the region.

Language

There is strong language ('f**k') throughout, as well as milder bad language ('bastard', 'bullshit', 'hell').

Violence

There is sustained war violence: soldiers exchange gunfire and attack one another with explosives, and injured and killed combatants are seen with bloody wounds.

A soldier pretends to masturbate beneath bedclothes after asking another soldier to describe what his mother looks like.
