It's an intimate moment for Jude Law as Watson (left) and Robert Downey, Jr., as Holmes in the 2011 film “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows”. The scene is Moriarty's munitions factory (a trope that dates back to the days of William Gillette's Holmes drama 115 years ago). Holmes's mind is on the torture he has just been enduring, and the Moriartful guards who are giving chase. Watson's thoughts are more on the honeymoon he's supposed to be enjoying — but Holmes wouldn't understand that sort of thing, of course.
