One character has unrequited love for another character, and later sexually assaults her. His behavior can be seen to exemplify “toxic masculinity” and he comes off as pretty creepy.

A man kidnaps a woman, restrains her and rips off her clothes. Literal sexual assault is not depicted but the scene is a visual metaphor for sexual assault. Disturbing and potentially triggering.

There are a few odd scenes in the movie. One particularly when a man's hand is seen merging into a woman's body, bulging under her skin from the crotch all the way up to her face. The skin then splits in half almost like a cocoon and reveals another woman inside.
