CASHBACK is a comedy/drama about a young artist who has the ability to freeze time. It has been passed '15' for scenes of nudity and some strong language.

The main defining issue in the film is the strong nudity. The principal character is an aspiring artist who specialises in drawings and paintings of the female form. A voice-over narration refers back to his childhood when he first saw a naked woman - an au pair walking from a shower. The nudity in this scene is quite explicit but it is entirely natural rather than sexualised in any way. The Guidelines at '15' state that "there are no constraints on nudity in a non-sexual context" and that is very much the style in which the nudity in CASHBACK is presented. Similarly, the nudity in a scene where time has been frozen and the young man "undresses" some female shoppers in a supermarket in order to draw them, also contains no sexual element and is, consequently, containable at '15' under the Guidelines.

There is one spoken use of strong language in the film but there are several more clearly visible mouthed uses where two female characters are shown shouting directly into the camera but with the sound obscured by the voice-over narration. This language is easily contained at' 15' where frequent use of strong language is allowed.
