violence
A man strikes his wife in the head with a meat cleaver; we later see him dismembering her body with a blade. A man pushes another out of a window and tries to drown someone in the sea. An unconscious man is repeatedly slapped in the face to revive him from a near-drowning. A person is executed by guillotine.
suicide
A woman repeatedly attempts to take her own life and there are verbal references to suicide ideation.
injury detail
There is sight of decapitated heads and severed limbs, including arms and legs. A woman's dead body is seen in a bathtub filled with bloody water. Patches and pools of blood are visible in the aftermath of violence and people are left with mild injuries following a vehicle crash.
nudity
A woman strips on stage after performing a dance at a club, revealing her breasts to the audience.
A man coerces his wife to have sex with him; she does so, but protests to her husband as she does not want to. A man and woman kiss and caress; we see them undressing and lying on a bed and on the floor together. There are references to adultery and to a woman's virginity. A man plunges large bladed scissors down a woman's throat to dislodge a fishbone she is choking on and there are scenes of knife threat. A cow is led to a slaughterhouse and we see its carcass butchered. There is very mild bad language ('damn').
