This film constantly introduces the action of digging or clawing into the ground Each time the camera zooms into this feat it marks an important event in Christines life The first instance where this is illustrated is when the man who she is supposed to marry the Reeve offers Christine an apple to eat and she responds by feeding it to the horse he is sitting on She tries to hold back her emotion in a tight semi-grin as she knows that she has just insulted the man who wants her hand in marriage by declining his offering Christine sits back on the ground after the Reeve rides away and the camera zooms into her clawing away at the dirt 1231 The scene quickly cuts to Christine digging a big hole with both of her hands so that another woman can pour milk into it perhaps as a gift to the Virgin Mary since the woman says she likes to drink after pouring 1408 Shortly after these two scenes Christine is caught by the priest in the act of scraping at the hair of the statue of Mary insisting that its not like that 1557 Christine has had a vision of Mary of her hair being soft and braided as opposed to straight and rough in the statue This outburst makes the priest believe that Christine has seen Mary and he eventually encourages her to become an anchoress when Christine asks if she can live with Mary 1650 This request is answered as Christine quickly becomes known as the Anchoress of Shere dead to the world and buried in a wall to carry out the rest of her like with her beloved Mary In the scene where Christine is officially becoming an anchoress the camera zooms into the last brick being placed and cemented creating Christines new home and scenes cut back and forth to the cementing and the clawing at the ground 2900
