THE ROCKET is a subtitled Laotian drama about a young boy who tries to prove he is not cursed by winning a local rocket building competition.

Sex

At one point some men are seen creating a wooden phallus to attach to a rocket. The object has a red tip and a hair covered base. One man jokes that they want to use the rocket to send their phallus "right up into God's arse" and the men are referred to as the 'dick committee'.

Violence

One character is accidentally killed when she is hit by a heavy boat that is sliding down a steep incline. She is suddenly knocked out of sight by the boat and is subsequently seen with a little blood around her head as she dies.

There is some use of mild bad language (eg 'shit', 'piss', 'crap'). There are a couple of scenes of natural nudity, one showing a woman's breasts and bottom as she kneels to give birth, and the other showing a dead woman's breasts as she is cleaned for burial. There are some scenes of mild threat as children play with, or play close to, unexploded bombs. The bombs are taken away from the children and safely detonated by adults, in order to teach them how dangerous they are. One character is shown to smoke from a large bamboo pipe, although it's never made clear what she is smoking.
