A man sustains some facial burns after a fire, which are given some focus in close-up.
There are some scenes containing breast and partial buttock nudity as part of clips from movies playing in the cinema, which are brief.
There are moderate sex references, pertaining to scenes of implied masturbation during a screening in a movie theatre, as well as men taking their turn to go behind a curtain with a sex worker. There are also references to erotic movies, including a poster featuring a woman in lingerie, as well as a drawing of a penis graffitied onto a nearby wall.
There is a sequence in which a fire breaks out in a projectionist booth and a boy runs into the burning building to try and save his friend.
There are scenes in which a boy is beaten by his mother. A boy receives corporal punishment at school when he fails to answer questions correctly. Language is mild ('bitch', 'bastard', 'sod', 'arse', 'God', 'screw', 'hell', 'shit', 'bloody' and the Italian term 'va fanculo'). There is also a scene in which a cow is being slaughtered. This does not include strong process detail but there is some blood surrounding the animal in the aftermath. School boys smoke a cigarette but the work does not glamorise smoking.
