Hitler (performed by Udo Kier) kisses a map of Germany, a remnant of patriotism that persisted when the Palme d'Or was awarded to Wim Wenders in 1984. Although Wenders was convinced that the World and its image could be bettered, the perversions in the bunker of the Führer in Berlin on April 30th 1945 offer a wholly different view of humanity, with promiscuity evoking consanguinity (the occupants of the bunker act as if they were members of the same family –the German race). Although the characters want to save their life and project a better social status, they remain ridiculous and vulnerable. Despite their imminent doom, Nazi deputies try to master their own death through plans of self-destruction. Faring a tad better, Hermann Göring tries to take the place of the chancellor to form an empire. Still this megalomania turns to the grotesque and hysteria. And as Adolf stamps the wall with his ass, others strive to leave no marks at all. According to the idea that artists don't give in to defeat, but use the limits surrounding them, some are still trying to embody symbols of hope.
