language

There is use of strong language (‘f**k’); milder terms include ‘shit’ and ‘hell’, in addition to use of the ‘middle finger’ gesture.

threat and horror

A woman becomes convinced that another person is being held captive and is likely to be murdered, but when she tries to persuade others to help they dismiss her fears as mental illness. Another scene shows blood pooling on the woman’s ceiling and dripping onto her face.

violence

A woman hears persistent knocking and sounds of distress coming from another flat and comes to believe that another woman is being abused, possibly by a spouse or partner. In another scene she witnesses an argument between a couple which she interprets as evidence of domestic abuse.


There brief sight of bloodstained fabric, and a close-up image of a small bloody wound on a woman’s knee. We also see a close-up image of a dead toad after someone accidentally steps on it. Other issues include references to mental illness and bereavement.
