  1. The shot of the mother calling down to the children from the balcony suggests that the mother is imprisoned in her life. She is helpless to help her child. She is seen calling down from behind what appears to be bars and barb wire. Lang establishes a sense of foreboding or impending doom through the song, the child nearly wandering into the street, and finally the murderer's shadow. The viewer is left with the expectation that the child will be killed.
