Prankster Winfried doesn’t see much of his estranged, high-powered consultant daughter Ines, who lives in Bucharest. One day, he decides to surprise her with a visit, but this brings tension as Ines is working on an important project. To enter her corporate life, Winfried creates a fictional alias.
Maren Ade’s groundbreaking, hilariously unpredictable tale of self-discovery takes comedy to a whole new territory. Equally sharp in its observations of the corporate world and familial ties, this is one of the films of the last decade, featuring one of cinema’s most memorable dads.
