In Maren Ade’s Academy Award nominated film, Toni Erdmann, Winfried (Peter Simonischek) unexpectedly visits his daughter Ines (Sandra Hüller) in Romania. Believing Ines to have lost her sense of humor amidst her corporate lifestyle, Winfried dons the persona of Toni Erdmann and pulls a series of pranks to try to reconnect with her. Garnering an Oscar nomination for Best Foreign Language Film and Winner of the International Critics’ Prize at Cannes, Toni Erdmann balances warm-heartedness, goofy humor and broad set-pieces with sadness, loneliness and mental illness. Already rumored for a Hollywood remake, Toni Erdmann is a strikingly original, brilliantly acted, serio-comic masterpiece that constantly swerves expectations. Don’t miss it. Rated R, this film runs 162 minutes. German with subtitles.
