This is not just another documentary on the increasingly fundamental Rainer Werner Fassbinder. It’s a documentary that includes never-seen-before interviews with Fassbinder –meeting-interviews shot by Danish director Christian Braad Thomsen. It’s a portrait, the story of a friendship and an admiration, and a multiple approach to the prolific and igneous R. W. F. Featuring his actresses, actors, mother, and his own voice –the controversial and particularly lucid voice of an unequaled filmmaker. The documentary’s timeframe, which ranges from the controversial and historical premiere of Love Is Colder than Death at the 1969 Berlinale up to Thomsen’s present-day view, allows us to combine angles and keep processing a director who left us –among many other things– a certain notion of work and creation for which collapsing was the only possible pause. Also, Fassbinder - To Love Without Demands manages to move around R. W. F., featuring part of his essential “surrogate family.” Some statements –such as Irm Hermann’s– transport us not only to a different time, but also to a special emotion, a feeling of intimacy that in this case is achieved through lots of love and cinematographic criterion.
