Dir: Maren Ade | Germany/Austria/Romania | 2016 | 162 mins | German w/English subtitles
Cast: Peter Simonischek, Sandra Hüller, Michael Wittenborn
German filmmaker Maren Ade’s (Everyone Else) astonishing Toni Erdmann is one of the standout films of the year. Germany’s Oscar entry for Best Foreign Film, it’s a broad and outrageously funny comedy about a truly dysfunctional father-daughter relationship. Peter Simonischek is Winifried, a divorced teacher with a penchant for wacky humour; frequently donning comedy wigs and false teeth. His daughter Ines (Sandra Hüller) – a sleek oil company executive – is less amused by such jokes; but Winifried suspects she is unhappy and so kindly decides to show up at her offices in a new guise: that of ‘Toni Erdmann’. A highly original, utterly hilarious comedy.
“Maren Ade’s unique study of an estranged but mutually depressive father and daughter is a humane, hilarious triumph” Guy Lodge, Variety#
