Hedwig and the Angry Inch (2001)

hedwigandtheangryinch_bornunicorn (1)There’s a cute teddy bear bottle of hot pink nail polish on a shelf in Hedwig’s trailer. You can see it in the number Wig in a Box.

fingrsbearpolish_bornunicornIt’s a Fing’rs nail polish from the late 1990s/early 2000s. Such a playful shape has a deeper meaning in the film: the bear is the symbol of Berlin, the city where Hedwig comes from; furthermore, gummy bears (teddy bear-shaped fruit gum candy) are among Hedwig’s favourite sweets, as shown in the scene where she first meets Luther.
