Toni Erdmann

Fri. 2/17 - Thurs. 2/23

(R) 2 Hrs. 42 Min. (Digital) In German with English subtitles (Art House & International, Drama)

In this masterpiece of German cinema, Winfried doesn't see much of his working daughter Ines. The suddenly student-less music teacher decides to surprise her with a visit after the death of his old dog. It's an awkward move because serious career woman Ines is working on an important project as a corporate strategist in Bucharest. 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. What's worse are his little jabs at her routine lifestyle of long meetings, hotel bars and performance reports. Father and daughter reach an impasse, and that’s what this funny, poignant and yet tragic film arrives at.  By its end, Toni Erdmann is a work of laser-guided social critique and a comedy.
“A slow-burning thing of beauty, ultimately as moving as it is implausibly funny.”~ Leslie Felperin, Hollywood Reporter
