MPAA Rated R for depiction of adult themes and sexuality

Sex & Nudity

  • (1-Sex) There are several scenes of two brothers engaging in sexual intercourse, in immediate succession, with women;
  • (2-Sex) The practice of the brothers sharing women in this way is thematic, and cannot sensibly be skipped or omitted;
  • (3-Nudity) There are three or four scenes in which a woman's breasts or a man's buttocks are seen;
  • (4-Nudity) There is a single scene in which a handsome, naked, adolescent boy, covering his genitals with his hand, is filmed.

Violence & Gore

  • There are scenes in which each of two brothers cuts his hands, once by crushing a wine glass, and once by deliberately opening the veins of the wrist; blood is shown, but the actual cutting is not emphasized or filmed too explicitly.
  • There is one scene in which the violence is only implied: we see a boy recovering from a castration operation by soaking in a milky bath, and are shown how drops of blood are coloring the milky water.


  • There is a small amount of language which might be considered profane in English translation (French "merde" does not carry quite the same vulgarity as its English translation), but in general, the language of the film is not excessive.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • The title character uses a moderate amount of opium, but it is suggested that this is mostly for medical reasons.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • There is one scene with an adolescent boy jumping from a height to kill himself.
