A man makes sexual advances towards the main character, a mute woman, who is his employee, because he likes the idea of a woman being silent during sex. He makes potentially derogatory sexual comments referencing her condition. Her clear unwillingness to reciprocate his advances does not dissuade him. Linking to this, at an earlier stage in the film he is seen covering his wife's mouth during intercourse for the same reason, preventing her from voicing her discomfort. Some may find this sex scene uncomfortably aggressive.
