After his dog dies, a music teacher and his alter ego travel to visit his daughter who works in Bucharest.
A humorous drama played out between an ageing prankster and his straight-suited daughter has a demented touch. The family dynamic is simple and the relationship fills out to encompass underlying issues, particularly the soulless horror of corporate life. "Toni Erdmann" is unconventional, as it sweeps up even the most mundane exchanges and endows them with meaning. There's insight and poignancy in learning to hold happiness. The long running time passes effortlessly, much like life itself. The greatest love of all...Anne Murphy
