Frequent violence includes men attacking each other with various middle age weapons, depictions of death from being shot by arrows, seeing a man’s hand chopped off, a decapitation that takes place off-screen with the head triumphantly raised, sequences of swordplay and other similar confrontations. Also, a young boy is in peril when attackers kill his parents. Principal characters decide to enter into an adulterous relationship, leading to a few sexual scenes involving kissing and a brief shot of head and shoulder nudity. A married couple’s inmate relationship is similarly portrayed. Another scene has two naked women lying against an unconscious man in an attempt to warm his body, but no explicit nudity is seen.
