No children are abused, but there is fear of it: when a little boy in a wheelchair is shown in a hospital, his father expresses his worries that radiation treatment for his son's cancer (which includes strapping the boy down) will hurt and/or kill the boy, but the boy is fine.

Marie's and Pierre's lungs soon become damaged from their work with chemicals and radiation, and they cough numerous times throughout the movie. They frequently cough up blood, which is shown on-screen several times.

During the Chernobyl incident, a man walks into the room with the nuclear reactor and is burned alive by radiation. Right after Marie and Pierre are shown at the second seance, Pierre reveals that underneath the bandage he has been keeping on his wrist, he has been intentionally burning his own skin with radium out of curiosity. During a nuclear test in Nevada, mannequins burn up and melt in the explosion. When Marie and her daughter go to a battlefield to help wounded soldiers, there are many soldiers with severe burns seen for the remainder of the movie.

The camera is mostly handheld, so it shakes in some scenes. There are several scenes where the camera sways or tilts, or the image flashes and flickers.

The ending takes place during WWI (showing many wounded soldiers), returns to the topic of nuclear explosions, and ends with an important death. The last part of the movie is a montage of positive results of Marie's life, but there are too many sad things leading up to it to be considered a happy ending.
