Continually, the film directors used many other techniques to send their message to the audience. The film began with a flashback from the main character, Valentin. The flashback contained strong images that exhibited some fears Valentin had as a child. Those fears were well illustrated by the actors, whom made the scenes relatable for the audience.

This is seen in a scene where Valentin was forced by his dad to jump off a cliff when he was a kid.

This type of taboo love occurs in the ancient Greek play Hippolytus and the 1962 film Phaedra when a stepmother falls in love with her stepson.
