** Theft of ForbiddenFruit. Around 1:10, the fruit shows up in the protagonist's hands; he throws it into the air, and when the scene cuts into another flashback, the fruit completes its arc. The fact that the fruit comes out of nowhere and is the only thing to maintain its continuity during any jump between the past and present suggests that it is the connection between their actions in the flashbacks and their current situation; the protagonist throws it into the air as if wishing to undo what the flashback shows(the taking of the fruit in the first place). When the flashback ends, the apple is gone again even though it should have fallen back inside the wagon, so it lacks linear continuity even though it creates a connection between the protagonist's present and his past--kind of ominous, since the protagonist's "continuity" is about to be disrupted by his execution.

* I never quite got what the protagonist of the music video for "Long Time" was sentenced to death for. Should I be worried?
