When Winfried catches up with his daughter, Ines, he is struck by her apparently unhappy and frustrated life as a management consultant. His concern for her leads him to appear on a business trip she is taking in Bucharest, in what he regards to be an attempt to save her from herself.
Toni Erdmann pits two worlds against one another: that of the impish, prankster father and the serious, grown daughter. Maren Ade’s film avoids the cliché of the successful businesswoman made dour by her commitment to work with a delightfully disorientating but tender examination of a father-daughter relationship that has derailed, serving cinematic punches that are hysterically funny one moment and poignantly sad the next.
Ade’s film has attracted a lot of attention with numerous wins and nominations across the film festivals, in particular the European Film Awards, where Toni Erdmann picked up top prizes for: Best Actress; Best Actor; Best Director; Best Screenwriter and Best Film.
