“The Golden Glove” is a grim, dirty beer hall — one of many on the polluted streets of 1970s Hamburg, but it is perhaps the most vile of them all. Here, those who have nowhere further to fall come together, those before whom proper citizens take a step back and cross to the other side of the street. One of the regulars is Fritz Honka, who works days as a factory janitor and at night, finds a suitable mate at the Golden Glove and brings her to his bachelor pad. From there, women rarely return.

A shocking film from a great name in new German Film, Fatih Akin — a merciless indictment of bourgeois society, horribly funny and funnily horrible. Part of the concourse program at the Berlin Film Festival.
