Winner of numerous European Film Awards and nominated for Golden Globes, Maren Ade's film must surely rank as one of the most bizarre comedies to have been seen on the Festival circuit.
Ines is a high flying oil company advisor, perpetually in meetings and according to her practical joking father, Winfried, is in need of lightening up. Adopting his alter ego, Toni Erdmann, he inserts himself forcibly into Ines' life.

Maren Ade's unique study of an estranged but mutually depressive father and daughter is a humane, hilarious triumph
Guy Lodge - Variety
One of the most brilliant comedies of the new millennium.
David Jenkins, Little White Lies
It's precisely and thrillingly as odd as life.
Robbie Collin, The Telegraph
A weird, thoughtful, affecting treat.
