ABOUT THE MOVIE
Taxi Zum Klo (“Taxi to the Toilet”) is a classic gay film from 1980 about Frank, a teacher in West Berlin who indulges in anonymous sex with other men after work. One day he meets Bernd and they move in together. But no matter how much Bernd tries to make it cozy at home, Frank always has to get back to cruising.
Taxi Zum Klo is a loving document of pre-Aids Berlin, and a touching comedy about the human desire for and struggle to achieve intimacy. The performances, generally consisting of actors playing themselves, are unstudied yet interesting, and the visual style of the film approximates a documentary.
The movie does not contain much explicit sex, but the sex it does portray is graphic and could shock some viewers. The movie was banned in Britain upon its original release due to the graphic gay sex scenes.
Duration: 99 minutes
Spoken language: German
