Acclaimed director Fatih Akin (The Cut, In the Fade) takes us on a dark and depraved journey into the world of Fritz Honka, an alcoholic serial killer who terrorised the female patrons of his local dive bar in 1970s Germany. Featuring an astonishing, booze-soaked performance by young German actor Jonas Dassler, who is completely unrecognisable in his portrayal of the unfortunate-looking Honka, The Golden Glove is a deeply disturbing look at a deeply disturbed individual, which becomes even more horrifying when you consider that it is based on true events.
