Love is Colder than Death (German: {Liebe — kälter als der Tod) is a 1969 German film directed by Rainer Werner Fassbinder. It is his first feature film. It stars Fassbinder himself as a petty hood, Franz, and Ulli Lommel as his friend who has been ordered to kill Franz by a crime syndicate. The cinematographer Dietrich Lohmann and the cast as an ensemble won an award at the German Film Awards in 1970.

The reception was generally negative, and the film was even booed at the 1969 Berlin Film Festival.[1] Today, it is seen as a fine example of Fassbinder's early style, with a heavy nouvelle vague influence.
