Love Is Colder Than Death

Liebe ist kälter als der Tod

Instrueret af Rainer Werner Fassbinder
Vesttyskland, 1969
Drama, Komedie, Avantgarde


For his debut, Fassbinder fashioned an acerbic, unorthodox crime drama about a love triangle involving the small-time pimp Franz (Fassbinder), his gangster friend Bruno (Ulli Lommel), and Franz’s prostitute girlfriend, Joanna (future Fassbinder mainstay Hanna Schygulla).

The film is full of beatings—it practically begins with a series of sadistic rituals that Lommel’s superiors perform on their new recruits—and it contains a few murders as well. Yet Fassbinder purposely drains the violence of suspense; it feels inevitable, ritualized, a cold fact of modern life.

Before making films, the prodigious and precocious Fassbinder founded a theatre troupe, and the coldly stylized, comically affectless performances are a mark of a singular sensibility. These performances, as well as his restrained, precise, yet highly textured and alluringly composed images, help to convert his starkly modern aesthetic into a world.

Formally, Love Is Colder Than Death blends the dynamic tracks and jarring cuts of the Nouvelle Vague with the arid, artificial performance style of RWF’s own Anti-Theater. But the film is more than the sum of its appropriations. Unabashedly off-putting (like Fassbinder himself), it stakes out its creator’s motifs and techniques, the latter changing with time but the former comprising the thesis to his career.
