LES ANARCHISTES - THE ANARCHISTS is a subtitled French drama in which a gendarme is tasked with infiltrating a group of Parisian anarchists in the late 1890s.

Language

There is a single sexualised use of strong language ('f**k'). There is also moderate and mild bad language, including uses of 'ass', 'bastard', 'cock', 'screw' and 'shit'.

Sex

There are two scenes of sex. In the first, a couple kiss passionately, after which the man removes his shirt and fumbles with the fastenings of his female partner's corset; there is then fleeting female breast nudity as he lies on top of her. In the second scene, the heads and shoulders of the same couple are seen in close-up; she is gasping and his head appears to be bobbing, implying sexual activity.

Violence

Moderate violence includes a scene in which a man is fatally shot in the chest; he clutches his chest and blood is seen on his fingers and shirt. In another scene, an anarchist commits suicide by shooting himself in the stomach or chest, in preference to being arrested; there is no blood or injury detail. In a raid on a political meeting, police officers lash out with truncheons and punches are thrown; a little later a man is seen with blood on his head.

Other issues include some mild sex references, a reference to laudanum use, and several scenes of adult cigarette smoking.
