    Horror

    A serial killer strikes fear in the hearts of residents of Hamburg during the early 1970s. Fatih Akin’s horror film The Golden Glove is based on a true story and the novel of the same name by Heinz Strunk. It tells the story of Fritz Honka, a man who murdered numerous women, and 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.
