Toni Erdmann 2016
Winfried (Peter Simonischek) is divorced and on the verge of retiring as an eccentric but appreciated music teacher. When his dog suddenly dies, he takes the opportunity to visit his increasingly distant daughter Ines (Sandra Huller), who currently lives in Bucharest working for an important consulting firm in the oil industry. Surprising her with an unexpected weekend visit, father and daughter share a strained, awkward visit which sees Winfried potentially compromise an important contract she’s been attempting to secure for quite some time. Sending her father off, she reminisces about the grueling weekend only to discover her father hasn’t left. Instead, he drops in on her social life in a garish disguise as someone named Toni Erdmann, an alter ego with a fright wig and false set of snaggleteeth who professes to be her CEO’s life coach (as well as the German Ambassador to another set of folks). Ines decides to play along with her father’s game, initially to avoid embarrassment with her colleagues. But the strange game begins to have a profound effect on them both.
