It Is Not the Homosexual Who Is Perverse, But the Society in Which He Lives
Nicht der Homosexuelle ist pervers, sondern die Situation, in der er lebt
1971 Germany 67 min N-18
Added to my films
A provocative look at the lives of gay men in 1970s Germany, the film follows naive country boy Daniel after he moves to Berlin and encounters a thriving gay community. His journey from adopting heteronormative behaviour to exploring his sexuality finds him being adopted by an elder sugar daddy, securing a job at a local gay bar and cruising from one gay milieu to another, caught in his addiction for fashion and sexual experiences. Daniel's rite-of-passage culminates when he meets a group of revolutionary gays who introduce him to the gay rights movement.

"Released just two years after Germany decriminalized homosexuality, Rosa von Praunheim's second feature stirred controversy from right-wing conservatives for its audacious depiction of gay love and from the gay community for its critical stance on their indulgence in the shallowness of bourgeois society. A revolutionary call-to-arms for queer cinema and Germany's gay movement, the film's cliché camp and agitprop stylings balance out its affectionate yet militant demand for liberation through self-determination." (Andrei Tănăsescu)
