Synopsis:
'The Early Works of Rainer Werner Fassbinder' brings together all of the German director's surviving works from the 1960s plus a documentary portrait examining his earliest days as a filmmaker. In the two short films, 'The City Tramp' and 'The Little Chaos', we find Fassbinder in search of an identity. In the two features, 'Love is Colder Than Death' and 'Katzelmacher', he begins to discover it. Dedicated to Claude Chabrol, Éric Rohmer, Jean-Marie Straub and the main characters from Spaghetti Western A Bullet for the General, Love is Colder Than Death is a playful crime picture, heavily indebted to the nouvelle vague.
Katzelmacher is more in line with Fassbinder's stage efforts, a character study and mini-melodrama in which the dynamic between a group of friends is radically altered by the arrival of an immigrant worker.
