|The Death Of The American Dream|
In Germany, Bruno and Eva have nothing going for them. Most of all, they are in danger and go to America with the hopes of a better life. At first, they are doing well– they're both working and they have a home. However, as time goes on, they become less and less happy with their situation. For Bruno, I think this moment is when he is in the car shop with the mechanics and they're grossly talking about Eva. Here, is a low point for Bruno in which it is clear that he does not enjoy America. For Eva, it is less about her unhappiness and more about her descent into the American Trap.

She spends too much money, is lazy, and takes advantage of her opportunity in a new country. It is those events that begin the downward spiral: Eva runs off with two truckers, Herr Scheitz and Bruno rob a barber and Herr Scheitz is arrested, Bruno steals a car and runs away. And finally he (most likely) kills himself in the true spirit of America– wearing a cowboy hat on a skilift next to a frozen turkey.
