NEVER LOOK AWAY is a German drama thriller which follows the journey of an art student who escapes to West Germany during the GDR regime.

Sex

There are several scenes of strong sex which feature thrusting and sight of breast and buttock nudity.

Threat and horror

A scene of strong threat shows a group of women being forced to strip naked before entering a gas chamber. There are shots of the women struggling to breathe before collapsing. In another scene, a woman is taken away from her family against her will.

A scene of moderate violence shows two men being shot down, resulting in brief injury detail. There is sight of a man who has hanged himself, and there are also references to abortions and miscarriages. There is use of mild bad language ('asshole', 'shit'), as well as milder terms including 'hell' and 'God'.
