Sex & Nudity

  • No sex scenes at all.
  • In a Turkish bath a woman shows her tattoo to another woman. The side of her breast is visible briefly.
  • Two women talk about that they are horny and they want to have sex.
  • A woman covers her nipples with her hands as she gets a tattoo.

Violence & Gore

  • There are several extremely graphic and upsetting descriptions of violence in a courtroom setting, including a nail bomb's effects on a deceased child.
  • Within the first few minutes of the film, a nail bomb set inside a backpack on a bike goes off outside an office building. It is mentioned that there were two fatalities, who turn out to be the main character Katja's husband Nuri and son Rocco. There are no graphic visual depictions of carnage relating to the incident; the worst we see is some blood on the walls when Katja visits the crime scene.
  • A woman punches another woman on the side of the head.

Profanity

  • One use of "c*nt," nine uses of "f*ck" and its derivatives, as well as milder swear words including 2 of "b*tch,", a few of "d*mn", "h*ll," and "sh*t."

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • The victim in this film used to be a drug dealer, which leads to occasional references and interrogatories about his criminal background.
  • Katja smokes cigarettes almost constantly throughout the film and does drugs in several scenes in the first act, including marijuana, cocaine, and tar heroin. However, the drug use is not glamorized, instead shown to be reflective of her descent into despair.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The sudden nature of the bombing in the opening of the film will disturb some viewers.
  • The mood of the film is intense throughout; there are frequent scenes of mourning, as well as heated conversations about the central crime.
