  • M/6 Not recommended to children below the age of 6. Content with this rating may be of longer duration and contain some fear factor.
  • M/12 Not recommended to children below the age of 12. Content with this rating may, due to its length and complexity, provoke in younger viewers fatigue and psychiatric trauma. Children below the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult.
  • M/14 Not recommended to children below the age of 14.
  • M/16 Not recommended to children below the age of 16. Content with this rating may explore aspects of sexuality, physical and psychic violence. Children below the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
