TONI ERDMAN

Without a warning a father comes to visit his daughter abroad. He believes that she lost her humor and therefore surprises her with a rampage of jokes.

This German comedy drama had a lot of potential. It starts out well but its greatest failing is it’s length — 2 hrs 42 mins! The tone of the movie doesn’t vary much throughout the entire time and so it becomes difficult to sustain interest. Overall, I did like the sentiments of the movie. But it never gets beyond “ok”. Definitely not a mainstream movie and requires considerable patience.
