A much needed re-release for this gay cinema classic

Taxi Zum Klo review

A 30th anniversary reissue, this landmark work of gay cinema was the openly autobiographical debut of late German writer-director Frank Ripploh.

The story of mismatched lovers, Frank (an engaging Ripploh) is a West Berlin primary school teacher who spends evenings cruising for men while his partner Bernd (Bernd Broaderup) prefers quiet nights in.

A refreshingly non-judgemental and amusing portrait of homosexuality in the pre-AIDS era, Taxi Zum Klo matter-of-factly addresses the mundane and the perverse.

But the real question here is not sexuality, but how to live as a couple.

      All of us have read timberland clearance thrilling stories in which the hero had only a limited and specified time to live. Sometimes it was as long as a year, sometimes as short as 24 hours. But always we were interested in discovering mens timberland boots just how the doomed hero chose to spend his last days or his last hours. I speak, of course, of free men who have a choice, not condemned criminals whose sphere of womens timberland boots activities is strictly delimited. Such stories set us thinking, wondering what we should do under similar circumstances. What events, what experiences, what associations should we crowd into those last hours as mortal timberland 3 eyes boat beings? What happiness should we find in reviewing the past, what regrets? Sometimes I have thought it would be an excellent rule to live each day as cheap timberland boots if we should die tomorrow. Such an attitude would emphasize sharply the values of life. We should live each day with a gentleness, a vigor, and a keenness of appreciation which are often lost when time stretches before us in the constant panorama of timberland 6 inch boots more days and months and years to come. There are those, of course, who would adopt the Epicurean motto of “Eat, timberland chukka boots, and be merry,“ but most people would be chastened by the certainty of impending death. In stories the doomed hero is usually saved at the last minute by some stroke of fortune, but almost timberland dancing boots always his sense of values is changed. he becomes more appreciative of the meaning of life and its permanent timberland boots spiritual values. It has often been noted that those who live, or have lived, in the shadow of death bring a mellow sweetness to everything they do. Most of us, however, take life for granted. We know that timberland roll top boots one day we must die, but usually we picture that day as far in the future. When we are in buoyant health, death is all but unimaginable. We seldom think of it. The days stretch timberland work boots out in an endless vista. HYD
