ROMA is a Mexican drama which follows a year in the life of a middle-class family in Mexico City in the early 1970s.

Disturbing images

There is a prolonged scene depicting a stillbirth. During the scene, there are sequences in which attempts are made to resuscitate the dead baby, as well as frequent sight of the dead infant.


There is strong language (‘f**k) as well as milder terms such as ‘crap’, ‘bastards’, ‘shit’, ‘bloody’, ‘asshole’, ‘piss’ and ‘bullshit'.

Moderate violence includes undetailed shootings and scene in which a riot breaks out. There is moderate threat when a pregnant woman is threatened at gun point, and also when two children are seen struggling at sea. There is natural full frontal male nudity.
