WWII - THE LONG ROAD HOME is a British wartime drama in which a soldier seeks to return home to his wife in England.

Language

There is frequent strong language ('f**k') and other terms including 'cock it up', 'bastard', 'shit', 'bloody', 'bugger', 'damn','hell', and 'Christ'. The British soldiers use racial slang terms typical of the wartime era to refer to the Germans, Italians and the Japanese.

Violence

Scenes of wartime violence include fire-fights and explosions with sight of impact and blood spurts, although none of these sequences are prolonged.

There are close up shots of injury detail in the aftermath of battle, such as bloody gunshot wounds and burns. One sequence features sight of a person who has taken their own life, however there is no actual scene of suicide. There are also verbal references to sex, although these are without any detail.
