Ratings and Controversy
When released, the movie was given an "Interdit aux moins de 16 ans" (16+) rating in France due to its inconsistent yet occasionally shocking scenes involving sex (with full nudity), violence, with some sudden shocking gruesome and disturbing images, particularly during the final 10 minutes. The movie was not rated by the MPAA, but would have most likely have been a strong R, perhaps even an NC-17. It was released as "unrated" instead.
