CORRESPONDANT is a French comedy in which a teenage boy volunteers to take on a foreign exchange student in the hope that it will make him look cooler at school.

Language

There are multiple uses of strong language ('motherf**ker' and 'f**k'). Other bad language includes uses of 'whore', 'dick', 'bitch', 'slut' and 'asshole'. There are also some uses of 'kraut' and 'boche' to refer to a German character.

Sex

There are strong verbal references including a woman commenting that after giving birth she couldn't tell if her husband 'was in or out' and a bully teasing another boy by saying 'your boyfriend came in your face' after yoghurt has been thrown at him. There are also strong visual sex references as a teen boy masturbates under some sheets while looking at a photo of the girl he fancies. In one scene it is also implied that a teenager is spreading chocolate spread onto his genitals and getting his pet dog to lick it off.

There is also some violence as a teen boy is punched and slapped by a bully. It is also implied that a kitten is dropped from a roof by accident and impaled on a metal spike. A teenager breaks the kitten's neck below the edge of a frame to put it out of its misery.
