There was a scene shot of Fritz Honka's childhood when he was raped. But in the editing, Fatih Akin found them disturbing because it was a stupid explanation. Saying that "just because you are raped as a kid it doesn't give you the permission to be a serial killer. Lots of people have been raped as kids and not turned into serial killers and it would be a slap in the face to them". See more »
There are preciseIy three reasons why people drink: First, to forget about the bad things. Second, to celebrate the good things. And third, when nothing's going on, to make things happen.

Well I never heard of Fatih Akin before but if all his movies are like this one then I will for sure watch others from him. Der Goldene Handschuh (The Golden Glove) is harsh and brutal but most important a perfect reenactment of the vile things the German serial Killer Fritz Honka commited. Also a great job from Jonas Dassler with his character of Honka. And big credits to the make-up artists that transformed all the characters into what they looked like. The whole cast acted well and gave this movie the perfect depressing state they're in. The scenes look like they are shot in the filthiest places of Sankt Pauli in Hamburg. Some scenes, well almost all of them, are really brutal, and that's how it should be when you make a movie about a serial killer. Honka was a deranged bully and sadist. To me The Golden Glove is one of the better movies about an existing serial killer. Not for everybody, but certainly well made.
