When divorced schoolteacher Winifried (Simonischek) and his careerist daughter Ines (Hüller) – a sleek, sophisticated management consultant – reach an impasse, Winifried’s alter ego “Toni Erdmann” appears on the scene, wearing a tacky suit and boasting a weird wig and bizarre fake teeth, and claiming to be a life coach. He seeks to connect with Ines through wacky humour and practical jokes, and she rises to the challenge her outrageous father poses. Includes pervy sex scenes, a karaoke impression of Whitney Houston and a surreal party featuring German Freikörperkultur.
