Pranks Ensue in First Trailer For Maren Ade’s Cannes Hit ‘Toni Erdmann’

Toni Erdmann 3

“I think it’s not a pure comedy in the sense that the father does funny things for a sad reason. It’s not that I’ve just taken it upon myself to tell jokes with this film,” director Maren Ade told us at Cannes when it came to crafting one of the most well-received films of the festival, Toni Erdmann. Her follow-up to Everyone Else concerns Winfried (Peter Simonischek), who plays bizarre, awkward pranks on his daughter, Ines (Sandra Hüller), and today we have the first international trailer.

As we said in our review, “Maren Ade has kept us waiting. It’s been seven years since her superb second feature Everyone Else premiered at the Berlinale, taking home the Jury Prize, and she’s spent the interim collaborating on the production of other people’s films (e.g. Miguel Gomes’) rather than releasing one of her own. Now that her new directorial effort is finally here, it validates all the eager anticipation, as Toni Erdmann is one of the most stirring cinematic experiences to come around in a long time.”

Check out the trailer below, which unfortunately is without subtitles (although there are a few sections in English), and we’ll update when they arrive.
