Daily Telegraph

Nominated for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Picture. 

Hailed as one of the standout films of Cannes where it premiered and won the FIPRESCI Best Film award, our Spotlight film for February is German filmmaker Maren Ade's (Everyone Else) astonishing Toni Erdmann.

It tells the story of the relationship between father and daughter. Winifried is a divorced teacher with a baffling penchant for wacky humour, and his daughter Ines is a sleek oil company advisor who is rarely amused by his jokes. Suspecting Ines is unhappy in her work Winifried shows up at her offices, under the guise of Toni Erdmann, business consultant and coach in an attempt to try and make her see the funny side of life.

Unlike anything we have seen before, this giddily funny and tender film - named one of the best films of the year in a critics poll -  intricately explores the lives of is wonderful and unpredictable characters to reveal the disconnect that so many of us experience in modern life.
