MARIO is a Swiss drama in which two young footballers on the same team are forced to deal with the consequences of their relationship being revealed.


There are scenes featuring implied masturbation, an image of a dildo attached to a piece of clothing and verbal references to oral sex.


There is strong language ('f**k', 'c**ksucker').

There is homophobic language in the context of a narrative about a gay relationship being disapproved of, but the film does not endorse discriminatory behaviour.
