Rotenberg, Germany. 2001. Armin Meiwes and Bernd Brandes, with an unmatched trust and a very skilled hand, went down in history as “Cannibal Lovers”. Meiwes found his match online through an advertisement he posted for an individual who wanted to be eaten. Brandes volunteered his body for Der Metzger, The Butcher, and a beautiful dream came to life.
There has since been a feature film made, Grimm Love, that depicts a retelling of events. As a dramatization, it is not a bad film. If you wish to have the cold hard facts and not a story, please do some light research first. This landmark in modern culture is a favourite of mine, Armin Meiwes a hero.
