Runtime: 01:49:55
Genres: Based on a True Story, Serial Killers, Sexual-Violence against Women, Gruesome

Plot – Spoilers:
Based on the German serial killer, Fritz Honka.

Fritz Honka is a lonely, weird-eyed German man who staggers around even when he isn’t drunk and surprisingly manages to remain employed, once even as a security guard. He is in awe of pretty women and worships them. Scabby old alcoholic women though are taken home, treated poorly, sometimes killed, and their body parts stuffed away in his apartment.

The Golden Glove is a beautiful movie on a terrible truth. When it’s not violent, it hauntingly captures pub characters and scenes with a charm that is almost nostalgic.

The blackest (and probably most disgusting) comedy you’ll watch in a while.

Just brilliant.
Shockingly just like the true story its based on.. absolutely absorbing story scene dialogue and acting.
Equal parts hilarious and gruesome just like the best films should be …
Viva Herr Honka

One of the best German movies, if not the best in our modern times when it comes to horror. I’ve watched it like thousand times. It’s just superb.

Unbelievably excellent. Only good movie, let alone great movie, to come out in the last 3 or 4 years that i know of. Before this it was Dallas buyers club. Sucks when all the movies have been made and the best ones are pre 00 and china owns the studios and do not care about art only the bottom line. Guess we have to rely on europe to make anything remotely interesting. American cinema is long dead. Nothing is even close to edgy or original anymore but ya know financing.

This might be the best movie on this site. This one says it all. If Crazy Murder had some production values. that beautiful little slice of life, or whatever it is, would also be up there. But no question about this treat. Thanks!

The film was interesting.

I kept thinking that the character Fritz had a resemblance to an Australian actor I admire until I decided to look up the actor who played Fitz and indeed, the character Fritz has a resemblance to the actor Jacob Elordi.

This guy’s acting is like: Albert Finney in Scrooge, but on enough drugs and alcohol for at least one effective overdose.
And, I was not expecting him to look like that IRL. Wtf.

P.S.
My previous comment was me being facetious. This is a well done movie, a tragic story, with great acting. I thoroughly enjoyed watching it and highly recommend watching it.

Kinda unrealistic. You know this fool had shit stains and skid marks all in his whitey tighties, and not one can be seen in this movie! There needs to be be more attention to detail lol

In a world where having a shit in a garden is now considered a hate-crime lets remember ..Vivienne Westward.. for her part in shaking the old-folks up a bit. May she add some colour to the drabness of heaven. In her memory I will be watching ..Leaving Las Vegas, 1995.. .

As another reviewer says you will want to take a shower afterwards. While the serial killing story is nothing really new (i.e. it reminded me somewhat of a more squalid version of 10 Rillington Place) it is the great acting, cinematography and attention to detail (e.g. the sh*t down the leg of the final victim being strangled) that all excel. The ‘grime’ of this film literally jumps out at you. A very strong 4 /5 jars of mustard

Well, well, well, that was a treat! It’s the kind of movie makes you want to shower afterwards. Pretty good acting too, I was curious how the main actor looked like and the fucker is actually good looking! Nice little fucked up gem from Germany

Masterpiece,my favourite movie of 2019 & since,the actor who played Fritz did a hell of a job,much like Charlize Theron did in her transformation into Aileen wournos in Monster,dark,dirty & grimy,it really captures that area of Germany in the 70s & the warped life of the Alcoholic Serial killer Honka,in all its putrid & pathetic glory,nice Addition,Cheers

This was a film that had it all. Killer looking like a retard, fat and skinny ugly women, one good looker and a wimp of some type. Good plot and pretty good gore. I could almost smell the rotting flesh he had stashed in the attic!
