TORNADO AND THE HORSE WHISPERER is a South African drama, from 2009, in which a horse whisperer encourages a depressed young man to form a bond with a troubled horse.

Self-harm

A man punches a mirror and a wall and then strikes his head against the wall, resulting in moderate bloody detail. It is implied that he cuts his arms with a mirror shard, although the cutting occurs off screen.

Injury detail

There is brief sight of bloody marks on a horse’s legs and side. We are told that the injuries are the result of ‘self-mutilation syndrome’.

A man is shown taking prescribed painkillers, and it is implied - although never stated - that he may be exceeding the correct dosage. During a college tutorial class about the care of horses, text about horse breeding, including the word ‘ejaculate’, appears briefly on the screen.
