COMMENTS: The material contains complex and mature themes presented in a thriller context, interrogating issues of spying, dancing, duplicity, espionage, deception, gaining valuable information, family relations, corruption, investigations, betrayal, revenge, sacrifice, manipulation, trust, intelligence, power and control. The thriller is laced with a strong sense of threat and menace. Sustained themes of suspense and mystery are filled with tense psychological tones. The themes also have the potential to inflict harm morally and emotionally, therefore they would be disturbing, distressing and confusing to the younger viewers as they do not yet have the ability of masking sense of such themes on their own. e.g. Themes such as sexual manipulation would be prematurely exposing children to adult experiences and negatively influence their attitudes and behaviour by morally misleading them. Therefore, viewers under the age of 18 are prohibited from viewing the material.
