THE TRAITOR is an Italian crime drama, based on real events, in which an informant helps to bring down leading figures in the Sicilian Mafia in the 1980s.

Violence

There are scenes of bloody gangland violence featuring shootings, dismemberment and strangulations, with images of aftermath injury detail. In one scene, a man sews up his own lips in undetailed fashion in a symbolic act to demonstrate that he will not inform on his partners in crime.

Sex

A woman's breast nudity is seen as a man thrusts between her legs. There is also sexualised breast nudity in another scene as a woman has a suggestive telephone conversation with her husband.

Language

There is strong language ('f**k'), as well as milder bad language including uses of 'pussy', 'sluts', 'bastard', 'shit', 'crap', 'pissing me off', 'jerk' and 'damn'.

A man convulses and foams at the mouth after ingesting strychnine offscreen in what is later referred to as a failed suicide attempt. Concerns are expressed about the man making subsequent attempts to take his own life. There are references to drugs and drug misuse in the context of a criminal organisation being involved in the trade of narcotics.
