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.

“One of the most brilliant comedies of the new millennium.”
