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.

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!

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

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

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

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.. .

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

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.

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.
