Taxi Zum Klo – Restored Version

★★★★ 'A daring, acid black comedy' Guardian

The remastered and uncut version of Frank Ripploh’s cruising classic, a film that screened at the ICA during its original release in the early 1980s. The director himself plays a teacher who, stressed out by life with a jealous lover, embarks on a series of sexual assignations in public lavatories (the title in English is, straightforwardly, ‘Taxi to the Toilet’). Sexually explicit, but also very touching and humorous, this is a time-capsule classic that looks at homosexual attitudes and behaviour before the spread of AIDS.
