Oscar-nominated for Best Foreign Language film, Toni Erdmann is an engrossing, wonderfully idiosyncratic comedy about an eccentric father (Peter Simonischek) who decides to move in with his career-focused daughter (Sandra Hüller). Winfried's relentless practical jokes initially grate on Ines, but if he keeps pushing, perhaps his antics will win her over.
"Dynamite, superbly acted. This quicksilver, emotionally astute comedy operates on many different registers and moods: Whoopee cushions and gag teeth are part of the fun, but so is a piquant dissection of father-daughter bonds and of the sinister banality of corporate consultancy." (Melissa Anderson, The Village Voice)
