    Two men fight on a sea shore, with one grabbing the other’s throat and slamming his head against rocks; there is brief sight of blood mingling with water in the aftermath. A man is stabbed in undetailed fashion.


    A story is told of a man who believed the noises emitted by eels during mating were “similar to the sounds of a woman’s pleasure”, and that he heard them watching “as men took turns with his wife”. A man confesses to a priest that he has “dirty thoughts”.

    Mild threat

    includes a man falling off a horse into a river where he drowns in undetailed fashion. There is brief sight of a body which is mostly obscured by water, and the face of a corpse in a grave before earth is thrown over it. There are brief images of a dead horse in the early stages of decomposition, and a scene of animal butchery as a sheep is prepared for a meal. There is brief natural male genital nudity in a darkly lit scene. There is mild bad language (‘shit’, ‘ass’, ‘piss’, ‘son of a bitch’, ‘God’, ‘damn’). Adult characters smoke pipes.
