Movie Info & Cast


From acclaimed filmmaker Fatih Akin (Head-On, The Edge of Heaven, In The Fade) comes a gruesome tale of notorious German serial killer Fritz Honka who haunted Hamburg's red light district in the 1970s. Based on the novel of the same name, THE GOLDEN GLOVE follows Honka as he frequents his favorite bar, the "Golden Glove", where schmaltzy German songs move the boozy bar hounds to tears and drinking is a reflex against pain and longing. There, Honka, a pitiful loser chasing after lonely women, keeps more than just secrets in the attic.

Perhaps the question is not whether the film needed to be so relentlessly grim, but rather whether it needed to be made at all.

On some level, Fritz’s story is compulsive viewing, only you wish you weren’t there.
