Tenderness of the Wolves 1973
Die Zärtlichkeit der Wölfe (original title)
1h 22min | Crime, Drama, Thriller | 12 July 1973 (West Germany)
Story of a gay serial killer who murders young boys so he can serve them as dinner to his circle of fellow cannibals.
This movie was shot in only 23 days at a theatre in Düsseldorf. It´s about a gay murderer who kills lots of young boys and then butchers them in order to eat ´em with his friends.-
Sounds scary, but it´s incredible how the film crew created an stunning atmosphere with just a very low budget. Fassbinder couldn´t direct because he did other projects, so crew member and actor Uli Lommel did the job. Many Fassbinder friends join the movie. See this unusual one!
