At the same time, enough mystery hovers over the ambiguous ending. The retrospective doubt it casts on Maria Sraun's motivation (whether Maria blew herself up deliberately or by accident, whether she always suspected Hennann to have plotted with Oswald, whether she needed Hennann to absent himself in order to keep her love for him strong and pure) can embolden the audience to speculate about the deeper meaning of the story, without leaving the cinema baffled or confused, proving that structurally motivated ambiguity makes a film especially productive in the spectators' minds. - 102 cinematically speaking, the world knew nothing about Gennany, nor how Germans felt about fascism, defeat and reconstruction - 103 9 It was even suggested that the film was a protest against the nuclear bomb, with the final blast meant to warn the spectator ofimpending disaster as Gennany permitted Nato nuclear weapons to be stationed on its soil.20 - 104 Fassbinder, by his own admission, was not interested in historical films, but in films about history from the perspective of the present: 'we make a particular film about a particular time, but from our point of view' .29 This meant that in his films, the past is seen across the traces which it has left in the present, fixed in the representations ofthat past, across the styles, the gestures, the images that evoke this past in and for the present. In this respect, MARIA BRAUN is a film which functions as a trigger of memories, but at one remove: not so much recalling a reality, as setting up a chain of associations, stories remembered from one's parents, pictures seen in the family album, in short, the standard version of the 1950s as present in the culture at large ofthe 1970s - 106
