Taxi Zum Klo

Frank is a 30 year old city dweller, living his homosexuality freely. When he isn't teaching in an elementary school with great pedagogic talent, he cruises for one night stands, until he meets Berdn, a movie theater cashier.

Emblematic of European queer cinema of the 80s, winner at the time of the Max Ophüls Prize, Taxi zum klo miraculously mixes genres, styles and forms : popular comedy, autobiographical portrait documentary inspired by the director's and actor Frank Ripploh's experiences (seen since in Kamikaze 1989 and Querelle), and unsimulated scenes. Obviously cult !
