Directed by Maren Ade
Rated R, 162 min.
This comedy is an Oscar nominee for Best Foreign Language Film. Disguised in a tacky suit, weird wig and even weirder fake teeth, a comically inclined and concerned father barges into his daughter’s highly structured corporate executive life. As the colorful and boisterous Toni, the father challenges his daughter to look at herself with an eye to loosening up. In all the comic madness, the daughter begins to understand that her eccentric father actually deserve a special place in her life.
If you're looking for the best and most beguiling foreign-language film of the year, you'll find it in Maren Ade's German father-daughter story that will leave you laughing and choking back tears, often simultaneously. - Rolling Stone
