Toni Erdmann

Toni Erdmann ★★★★★

It's no surprise that I absolutely LOVED Toni Erdmann.

In fact, it might just be my favorite of the year; which is funny because this and The Salesman were my most anticipated films of 2016. 

Marin Ade's film made me curl up with laughter, and almost tear up with how thoughtful and tangible the whole experience was.

Some people may think that the almost 3hr runtime is tedious, and whilst it seems; it doesn't feel at all like that. It ruminates on a father-daughter connection, which is at times a bit depressing but all the more comical with Winfried's alter ego Toni Erdmann, who constantly made the whole theater laugh whenever he appeared onscreen with his fake hair and fake teeth.

One of the funniest and most charming experiences I've had with the cinema. Cannot wait to revisit this. I need to see more of Maren Ade's works.
