I AM NOT MADAME BOVARY is a Chinese drama in which a woman who has been tricked into agreeing to a divorce doggedly takes on the Chinese government and legal system in her fight for justice.

Sex

Moderate sex references include the dialogue line, "That was rape", said tongue-in-cheek by a woman following consensual sex. The woman's bare back is exposed as she lies on her side in bed next to her bare-chested partner.

Suicide

Verbal and visual references to suicide include a scene in which a woman loops a rope noose over the branch of a large tree. She then stands on a pile of concrete blocks but, as she is about to place the noose over her head, a man intervenes and she comes to no harm.

Other issues include infrequent scenes of adult cigarette smoking and mild bad language, including uses of 'bastard', 'crap', 'pissing off' and 'screwed'.
