Movie Info

It seems like a good thing when Philip (Mathias Freihof), a high-school teacher, bumps into Tanja (Dagmar Manzel), starts a relationship with her, and eventually moves in with her. But Philip has a secret he hasn't even told himself. He attended a transvestite ball and met a man named Matthias (Dirk Kummer) there, with whom he also has been having an affair. He can't bring himself to tell either one about the other one.

Audience Reviews for Coming Out


this is a powerful little film that is hard to find. so if you get a chance to see it, watch it. it may be pre-aids, but there's plenty that is timely.
