Tenderness of the Wolves Film Poster


Long-time Fassbinder collaborator Ulli Lommel directs this provocative film based on the true story of German gay serial killer Fritz Haarmann. The actual events took place in the depression, but the film updates the story to the closing years of World War Two. Haarmann was the Sweeney Todd of Hanover, an unrepentant killer who vampirised his victims, sliced and diced the corpses and sold the meat on the black market - and was sheltered from the law by his position as a police informer.
