STILL THE WATER is a Japanese coming-of-age drama about two teenagers who fall in love, he whilst still coming to terms with the divorce of his parents and she whilst coping with the imminent death of her mother.

Sex

In one scene a couple have sex in the dark. A man's head appears to be near or between a woman's thighs, and a little later the woman's body writhes as the man thrusts down into her. In another scene a young man lies on top of a young woman in a mangrove swamp. They kiss and there is a fleeting glimpse of one of the woman's nipples.

Other issues include portrayals of goats being slaughtered, natural nudity, mild sex references, and a poignant scene in which a dying woman finally passes away. Infrequent mild bad language is confined to two uses of 'arse'.
