DANS LA MAISON - IN THE HOUSE is a subtitled French language drama in which a sixteen-year-old boy insinuates himself into the life and home of a school friend.

Language

There are uses of strong language ('f**k') and mild/moderate bad language, including subtitled uses of the terms 'ass', 'asshole', 'bitches', 'shit' and 'prick'.

Sex

There is a scene in which a woman straddles her husband as he sits on their bed and thrusts into her. The couple appear to be naked, but other than a fleeting glimpse of the woman's bare breasts, all detail is concealed by thighs and arms. In another scene the sixteen-year-old principal character is seen in bed with a mature woman. Although it is implied that they have had sex, the scene includes no nudity nor sexual activity.

A scene set in a gallery includes some sexual images within works of art. Examples include a painting of four penises arranged in the shape of a Swastika, inflatable sex dolls displayed in a glass case, and three freestanding sex dolls that respectively have the faces of Hitler, Stalin and Mao.

Suicide

In a fantasy sequence a youth is seen hanging from the ceiling by his school tie, with his feet dangling a few inches from the floor.
