Summary
Ripploh's semi-autobiographical snapshot of the life of a gay schoolteacher captures an unyielding vision of gay culture in 1981 West Berlin. Through his gritty portrayal of a dual lifestyle, one that combines daily lesson plans and nightly hookups in public bathrooms, Ripploh laid bare the dark secrets of the closeted lifestyle and contributed to the birth of a new genre. A pivotal piece of cinematic history that shows how much the modern gay mainstream has evolved
