    I don't think this film would even have been possible were it not for Fellini's and Giulietta Masina's love for each other. A teacher in film school once taught me…

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I've been trying to get my mom and sis to sit down and watch this with me ever since it came out. This weekend we finally did it, because neither could take another minute of me talking about how much it had reminded me of my late dad - a very funny, incredibly loving (white-haired, german-speaking Swiss) man, and the missing piece in our lives.

    For this gift alone Toni Erdmann would rank high with me - I could feel…
