It was the film that shocked and delighted audiences the world over. It was seized by US Customs, restricted to screenings in private clubs in London and Paris and terrified the Mary Whitehouse establishment. Welcome to the aftermath of Frank Ripploh – school teacher, film director, and insatiable sex addict!

Taxi Zum Klo lifts the lid on the life of a constant cruiser – Frank even corrects homework in public toilets as he waits to score. One evening, he meets sweet natured Bernd, but while they are similar, the need to sleep around applies only to Frank. For how long will Bernd and Frank tolerate each other's habits, and for how long can Frank keep his sexual orientation out of the classroom?

Fully restored and re-mastered, with exclusive extra features, Peccadillo Pictures are extremely proud to present an important addition to the gay cinema archive – uncut!

The Collectors DVD has a limited edition cover with a 12 page mini booklet in collaboration with LITTLE JOE magazine (eyes right for tthe cover) featuring an interview with Frank Riploh. We also have two exclusive extras, an introduction from Mark Kermode and a documentary looking at the turbulent life of the film within the UK.
 
Other documentaries put the film within its historical context and an video interview with Frank Riploh give an astonishing insight into the directors life.
 
The DVD also includes a reprint of the original film poster from 1981 - what more could you want!
