Frank Ripploh, West Germany 1981. 95 mins. Certificate 18. German with English subtitles

Director Frank Ripploh’s low-budget, hardcore gay sex comedy from 1980s Berlin. The film follows Ripploh’s self-named character as he juggles work as a teacher, socialising with colleagues and neighbours, his compulsive sexual adventures and a fledgling relationship with a more domestically inclined lover.

This is a charming, filthy and wonderfully liberated film. Don’t miss it.

★★★★★ “An astonishing queer Berlin odyssey” TIME OUT
★★★★ “A landmark of gay cinema” SOSOGAY
★★★★ “Scabrous, satirical, confrontational. A one-man, one-film gay new wave.” GUARDIAN
★★★★ “Far from being degenerate filth, (the film) is a loving document of pre-Aids Berlin, and a touching comedy about the human desire for and struggle to achieve intimacy.” TELEGRAPH
