NOMINATED: Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film of the Year
NOMINATED: The Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture - Foreign Language
Winfried doesn’t see much of his working daughter Ines. He suddenly decides to surprise her with visit after the death of his old dog. It’s an awkward move because serious career woman Ines is working on an important project. The geographical change doesn’t help the two to see more eye to eye. Practical Joker Winfried loves to annoy his daughter with corny pranks. Enter flashy ‘Toni Erdmann’, Winfried’s smooth-talking alter ego. Disguised in a tacky suit, weird wig and even weirder fake teeth, Toni barges into Ines’ professional life, claiming to be her CEO’s life coach. As Toni, Winfried is bolder and doesn’t hold back, but Ines meets the challenge. The harder they push the closer they become. In all the madness, Ines begins to understand that her eccentric father might deserve some place in her life after all.
This film is subtitled.
"Raw, painful and excruciatingly funny, Toni Erdmann might just be one of a kind." - Daily Telegraph
"A wildly hilarious, crazily off-kilter and touchingly honest story of a father-daughter relationship that's both modern and timeless." - Salt Lake Tribune
