violence
In a brief scene of domestic abuse, an angry father aggressively slaps his son's face before verbally abusing his wife. A group of sex workers attack French soldiers at their base. It is subsequently revealed that the attack was in response to the soldiers' earlier misbehaviour at the sex workers' brothel.
threat and horror
There is a brief scene in which a drowning man accidentally pulls his colleague to his death during an attempt to save him. A priest briefly performs an exorcism. In a fantasy scene, hooded figures menace and subsequently interrogate a man.
language
Infrequent strong language ('f**k'', 'putain') occurs, as well as milder terms ('whore', 'pussy', 'piss', 'crap', 'bullshit', 'moron', 'God', 'damn', 'hell', 'butt')
sex
A man gropes a woman over her dress. In a comic scene, a father shows his son photographs of statues, and which includes sight of a statue resembling a man with his penis exposed. The scene is accompanied by a verbal reference to a 'dong'. There are also verbal references to sex workers, brothels and to sexually transmitted diseases.
discrimination
A young boy is called a 'sissy'. A black woman is referred to in derogatory and negative terms. However, discrimination and racism are not condoned by the work as a whole.
injury detail
During a fantasy scene, there is brief sight of a limited amount of blood on a mill-wheel.
dangerous behaviour
A young boy imagines villainous characters placing a young female crime-fighter inside a washing machine drum before the machine is switched on. The context is clearly fantastical, rather than realistic.
alcohol and tobacco
There are scenes in which adult characters smoke cigarettes and drink alcohol.
