The best German comedy you’ve ever seen. Period.

The critics' darling of this year’s Cannes Film Festival, German comedy TONI ERDMANN tells the story of Winfried Conrad who takes on the role of businessman “Toni Erdmann” in order to be able to spend time with his adult daughter Ines. Thanks to memorable performances by lead actors Peter Simonischek and Sandra Hüller, and intelligent choices by director Maren Ade, the film manages to infuse its seamless blend of comedy and drama with an emotional resonance few – if any – German movies have achieved before.
