Taxi Zum Klo
Germany (DE), 1981, 96 minutes, SD
The notorious hit of the New York Film Festival.
Taxi Zum Klo Synopsis


It was the film that shocked and delighted audiences the world over. It was seized by US Customs, restricted to screenings in private clubs in London and Paris and terrified the Mary Whitehouse establishment. Welcome to the aftermath of Frank Ripploh – school teacher, film director, and insatiable sex addict!


Taxi Zum Klo lifts the lid on the life of a constant cruiser – Frank even corrects homework in public toilets as he waits to score. One evening, he meets sweet natured Bernd, but while they are similar, the need to sleep around applies only to Frank. For how long will Bernd and Frank tolerate each other's habits, and for how long can Frank keep his sexual orientation out of the classroom?


Fully restored and re-mastered, with exclusive extra features, Peccadillo Pictures are extremely proud to present an important addition to the gay cinema archive – uncut!

Whoa! This is so unconventionally funny, sexually frank and visually graphic!  There's this scene I like, that of Frank and Bernd dancing and frolicking in the snow and rolling in it while smooching away.  That was epic! But then again, that toilet scene of Frank  the peeping tom was one of a kind, with the guy on the next cubicle sticking his private part on the hole, well momma, that was out of this world! A semi-autobigraphy according to Ripploh,  this isn't really about his sexual exploits but more so about his lonely life and unhappiness and his tendencies for promiscuity.  As much as this film can be really offending for some viewers, one can't help but admire Ripploh for baring his life and well, also literally baring it all for the world to see.  A controversial film during the 80's and pre-Aids era, this  is definitely an interesting film to watch although I'd like to think that this isn't for everyone.

As a film made in the 80's this really amazes me! It's quite ahead of its time and more straight-forward and visually frank as compared to gay films of recent years.  The opening scene alone features nakedness and although funny there's this bathroom scene that's quite off, when Frank washes his butt after defecating, quite off and I wondered, why it had to be really executed. Nevertheless, the film has this quirkiness that will affect you and   Ripploh was  extraordinary in his portrayal of a teacher who's so into men. Indeed, those mustache and beard is a cute cover-up!  Worth checking out!
