In Phantom of the Opera
Christine Daae faints into Phantom's arms.(below)
Why would a statue provoke such a reaction?
I've only seen the movie once, because I prefer the musical, but the only fainting I remember is when Christine sees that the phantom has a doll looking at lot like Christine and wearing what looks like a wedding dress. My understanding is that seeing it gives Christine a look at what her future will look like if the phantom gets his way, and as that is shocking to her she faints.
