violence
One person aggressively grabs and shouts at another during a heated confrontation, but others quickly intervene. A person is falsely accused, without strong verbal detail. of burning another person to death, when in fact no murder has occurred.
language
There is infrequent use of strong language (‘f**k’). Milder terms include ‘slut’, ‘shit’, ‘Scheiße’, ‘asshole’, ‘crap’, ‘hell’ and ‘Goddamnit’.
sex
During a moderate comic sex scene, a clothed woman straddles a clothed man in bed and bounces up and down while singing and moaning. Verbal sex references are mild and infrequent.
theme
The film deals with the theme of death and bereavement and features a mildly melancholic tone throughout, mitigated by quirky dark humour. A man calmly applies makeup to his mother’s dead body - which is not visibly damaged or disfigured in any way - and drives her across the country. A dog is accidentally struck by a car and then euthanised with a gun, although the visual detail is minimal and the shooting occurs off screen. Another scene contains brief undetailed references to a person’s terminal cancer diagnosis.
alcohol and tobacco
People are occasionally seen smoking tobacco, reflecting the film's 1980s setting.
