Why Is Mother Teresa Rated Not Rated?

The movie focuses on the incredible accomplishments of a humble nun who determines to help the poor and needy. Demonstrating due to civil and religious unrest, angry men begin to fight and gunshots are heard. Bloody wounds are shown from combat and accidental injury. A man threatens a woman with a knife and an angry mob throws stones. Men, women and children are shown begging for food. Illness and death are discussed and implied. A nurse holds a saw that is to be used in an amputation operation. Scandals over money, accusations of selling children, and problems over proper permits plague charity efforts.
