Toni Erdmann - Preview

Toni Erdmann

Preview by Jack Foley

FROM acclaimed writer-director Maren Ade, Toni Erdmann is a remarkably touching and outrageously funny portrait of an offbeat father-daughter relationship.

Sandra Hüller plays Ines, a highly-strung career woman whose life in corporate Bucharest takes a turn for the bizarre with the arrival of her estranged father Winfried (Peter Simonischeck).

A practical joker with a liking for silly disguises and childish pranks, Winfried attempts to reconnect with his daughter by introducing the eccentric alter ego Toni Erdmann to catch Ines off guard, not knowing how capable she is of rising to the challenge.

The breakout hit of last year’s Cannes Film Festival and the recipient of universal critical acclaim, Toni Erdmann is as humanist as it is absurdist – a comedy about the importance of celebrating the humour of the everyday.

Toni Erdmann is released on Blu-ray and DVD on Monday, May 29, 2017.
