‘One of the most stirring cinematic experiences to come around in a long time.’

About

A father, a daughter, and a set of false teeth.

A joyous, laugh-out-loud film so continually surprising that it has become the talk of film festivals from Cannes to Melbourne. ‘Toni Erdmann’ is the embarrassingly tactless buck-toothed alter-ego of Winfried Conradi, a recently retired schoolteacher with a penchant for ridiculous stunts. At a loose end and eager to reconnect with his serious and career-driven daughter Ines, Winfried decides to tag along on her important business trip in Bucharest and win her over with a relentless series of daft practical jokes. Full of rich detail and unexpected joy, Toni Erdmann is a constant, head-spinning delight.
