Excellent realistic portrayal of a gay male in Berlin in the early 1980s,
This review is from: Taxi Zum Klo [DVD] (DVD)
What a find! Taxi Zum Klo (Taxi to the Toilet) is a rare gem. The film was originally not released in the UK as the BBFC would not allow certain scenes to be seen. Rather than edit the film and allow the film to be censored a decision was taken not to release the film. In 2005, Film4 resubmitted the film to the BBFC who allowed the film to be classified as an 18 uncensored.
The film does contain some gay sex scenes in and has a watersports scene which may not be to everybody's taste. However they are all vital parts of the film and certainly make this into the masterpiece that it is.
I loved seeing the way Berlin was back then. The film certainly looks dated in some places, but that is part of its charm.
This will be a film that I will watch again sometime soon.
Well worth a watch!
