German Cinema: Toni Erdmann

Thursday 14 November 2019 18:45-21:30

From September 2019, once a month on a Thursday, the Institut français d’Ecosse will proudly be hosting screenings of German films in partnership with the Goethe Institut in Glasgow.
The film this week is Toni Erdmann by Maren Ade.

Despite all his activities, Winfried Conradi, a retired music teacher, suffers from loneliness. His daughter, who’s pursuing a career abroad as a management consultant, is of particular discomfort to him. When Winfried’s dog dies, he travels spontaneously to Bucharest to see Ines. Her father’s arrival, however, does little to please her: he immediately interferes in her life and work, embarrasses her with ridiculous disguises, and, if necessary, acts as a rude impostor. The moving aspect of this quirky father-daughter tragicomedy? Both parties’ behaviour remains transparent at all times. The reconciliatory aspect? The conflict brings the two together.

Starring Sandra Hüller, Peter Simonischek, Michael Wittenborn
