Frank Ripploh, Germany, 1980, 35mm, 98 min.

Writer-director Ripploh also inhabits the lead role in this landmark film of German queer cinema, playing an elementary school teacher whose days in the classroom are followed by seamy nights cruising the public toilets for anonymous hook-ups, grading papers in the john as he waits for his next likely prospect—a cozily compartmentalized arrangement that’s shaken up when he meets commitment-minded Bernd.
