A fish and its bowl is thrown out an upper floor window and smashes onto the street below. The fish is briefly shown lying motionless in a man's hand after he picks it up. The man shouts "murderer!", so it's assumed the fish is dead.

I assume they used fake fish for the scene when the bowl is thrown out the window, but I can't find any info confirming that.

Some may consider it torture:

A character is tied up for days with a hood over their head at times. They complain of difficulties breathing, are pistol-whipped, and told they will be executed if the captors don't get what they want.
