Love is Colder than Death is a 1969 German film directed by and starring Rainer Werner Fassbinder. While the film largely received negative reviews upon it's release, it has now been understood as an example of Fassbinder's filmmaking style, heavy in French new wave influence. Many of the caveats of his specific film style are featured prominently: improvised dialogue, rapid changes of scene, and long tracking shots. In the film Fassbinder plays Franz Biberkopf, a petty thief who has lived a life on the edge. Biberkopf's friend, actress Ulli Lommel, has been ordered by a crime syndicated to kill Franz. For their work in the film, the cast won an acting award at the 1970 German Film Awards (the Lolas). Also starring Hanna Schygulla, Ingrid Caven, and Hans Hirschmuller, Love is Colder than Death was booed throughout the credits when the film was presented at the 19th Berlin International Film Festival.
