Toni Erdmann is an intergenerational film about a father and his estranged daughter, who has a successful, but stressful, career at an international consulting firm. Surprisingly, it is the father who struggles for reconciliation by the use of outrageous humor. This improbable story line (at 162 minutes) takes time to develop, but the film emphasizes the considerable effort needed to overcome long lasting family separation.(In German, with English subtitles).
