WESTERN is a German drama in which a team of builders come into conflict with a Bulgarian village, near which they're working.

Language

There is infrequent strong language ('f**k'), as well as milder terms such as 'asshole' and 'damn'. A dislikeable character uses the discriminatory term 'retarded'.

Sex

There is a brief shot of a couple having sex, but without nudity. Characters joke about using Viagra.

Violence

Brief scenes of violence include fist fights and a man brandishing a flick knife. In one sequence a group of men hold a character's head underwater.

A horse is injured in a fall and abandoned by its rider. It is later discovered and put down by gunshot.
