Die Zärtlichkeit der Wölfe (Tenderness of the Wolves)

Filmgebeuren - 1973 - Crime, Drama, Biography - Dialogue: German - Format: 35mm
Director: Ulli Lommel Composer: Peer Raben With: Kurt Raab, Jeff Roden, Margit Carstensen, Ingrid Caven

Using his status as a police informant to procure his victims, baby-faced, shaven-headed Fritz Haarmann dismembers their bodies after death and sells the flesh to restaurants, dumping the remainder out of sight.

“The comedy doesn’t blunt the horror of Haarmann’s murders, but it does enable Lommel to implicate the ‘tender wolves’ - the society that makes such crimes possible - without resorting to didacticism or moralizing.” - Time Out
