Divorced teacher Winifried doesn’t see much of his daughter Ines. When he pays her a surprise visit his penchant for wacky humour irritates her and soon father and daughter reach an impasse and Winifried agrees to go home to Germany. But Winifried suspects his daughter is unhappy and so kindly decides to show up at her office in a new guise. Enter 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 personal life coach.
Maren Ade’s unique study of an estranged but mutually depressive father and daughter is a humane, hilarious triumph. VARIETY
