Hands Picture of Serial Killer Fritz Honka go Viral on Social Media with His Big Finger Nails.. The graphic depiction of the gross deeds of ‘70s German serial killer Fritz Honka murdering women and dismembering their bodies in Fatih Akin’s movie The Golden Glove left Berlin Festival audiences in shock.
What was the celebrated Hamburg-born director of Turkish parents thinking? He’d won the Golden Bear for Head-On in 2004 and had recently attracted worldwide praise for In The Fade, his 2016 film with Diane Kruger who won a best actress Golden Globe after returning to her native German language.
He transformed completely to play Honka, an ugly hunched man whose only recourse was to spend time with older women/prostitutes, at a downtrodden Hamburg bar called Zum Goldenen Handschuh, which has been open continually 24/7 since 1956.
“I didn’t have to think about playing older because the makeup department did a great job–even if I had contact lenses that meant I could only see in 2D,” Dassler explains. “I didn’t think about the age gap, I tried to think about the biography and history of the character and to suck it in and get it into my body.”
