Themes are of an adult nature which may be disturbing, distressing or upsetting to children under the age of 16 as they will not be able to comprehend the storyline which is full of mystery, infidelity with no clear resolutions and will leave the viewer hanging. Furthermore the prostitution aspect in the film may be confusing to children who are still developing cognitively.
