Love Is Colder Than Death

Liebe ist kälter als der Tod

West Germany, 1969
Drama, Comedy, Avant-Garde


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).
