With tears on the road !

„Der goldene Handschuh“ by Fatih Akin, represents the dark side of the life where women selling sex to survive .
Also the film explains in cruel details the level of this side of the society. We watch the mighty male power over females, it spots the light how the main protagonist Fritz is raping and killing his victims violently.
It seems like poverty is the direct trigger for crime. Women are forced to work in prostitution to afford the basic necessities of life. At the end the criminal arrested after a fire in the neighbor’s apartment led the police to the bodies of his victims hidden in his home. From my point of view the film has violence, horror and heart breaking scenes, in which shockingly lives pain and injustice of human life.

Genre: thriller drama, director/screenplay: Fatih Akin, section: competition
