A film that takes the generational gap comedy formula, pops on a wig and a pair of fake teeth, and turns it up a few notches - Toni Erdmann manages a unique balance between relentless comedy and bittersweet drama. Winfried (Peter Simonischek) - a retiree with a penchant for practical jokes - doesn't see much of his workaholic daughter Ines (Sandra Hüller). After an impulsive visit to see her in Bucharest, causing much embarrassment, he agrees to go home to Germany. Enter Toni Erdmann, Winfried's eccentric alter-ego, who claims to be the life coach of Ines' boss...
