Taxi Zum Klo is a comedy of manners that tells the story of Frank Ripploh, a Berlin school teacher with a very active sex life. Frank tries to keep his professional and private life separate, but when he begins a new relationship his love of hookups places his teaching career and his romantic life at stake. Taxi Zum Klo was considered groundbreaking at the time for its frank depiction of homosexuality and is today celebrated for its in-depth look at early 80s gay culture in West Germany. A semi-autobiographical work written, directed, and starring Frank Ripploh, Taxi Zum Klo humorously portrays the contradictions of closeted life in a film that well deserves its legendary cult status.
