CW: Gore in a scene.

Indeed. Although I find what happens more disturbing than the way it is visually portrayed, which is why I guess I didn't mark this (I normally really dislike "gore").

By the way, at some point, this site will have a better way of displaying what age category a film is aimed at than a simple "NSFW" genre. So for a film like this, I guess it should clearly be marked as aimed at adults and contraindicated for children (with a "neutral" for teens). There will inevitably be some debatable value judgements involved in that, but on the whole, probably preferable to having no info about that at all.

Oh, good to hear! Actually I didn't mind much that the site didn't have many content markings as it is relatively now, so I just marked this in the comments just in case. I think marking it as aimed as adult is good enough to avoid showing it to younger audiences by mistake.

Right now, would it be fine if I mark some "heavy scenes" (graphic stuff) in the comments just in case as CW/TWs (only if it's really present)? or would it be ok to leave it as that? Just wondering !

If you feel like it, sure. I suppose for this one, I thought the words "tragic folk story" in the first sentence was enough of a hint that this wouldn't be easy viewing. Mostly, I've been writing warnings for things like nudity, even when it's not actually objectionable (like in "Olympians" - which has male nudity but which I don't feel deserves the "NSFW" genre). Are there some other things you've noticed, then?

Oh besides the CW I punted out here, I was just thinking of pointing out in next films (if I find it) distubing and graphic stuff that are sensitive to the regular audience. (nudity not counting as it is rather natural) For example: scenes of decapitation, SA, self deleting(? and graphic blood scenes
