Portrait of a German field marshal from World War II is at the same time a question about good and evil in human nature. Shown on his uniform and shirt are quotes from Erwin Rommel concerning politics, military matters and the Fuhrer. They relate an affection for a murderous regime and at the same time a feeling of loyalty towards ones own subordinate soldiers. The barely visible, pink fragments of letters to his wife show a completely different side of the General - a loving husband and father. The blots around his head suggest suicide, which Rommel committed in order to save his families lives.
