    In a way yes, but it is not a gory film at all. It does contain nudity though.

    Guys, apologies for asking dumb, tangentially related questions: does anyone know how to replace a damaged Criterion blu case? My copy of The Double Life of Veronique has superficial damage to the case, but as they seem to use custom packaging, it's not clear to me how to replace it. I have contacted Criterion themselves but don't have high hopes.
