Well acted however the 'awkward moments' (noted by Blackpeter) include full frontal nudity and masturbation scenes which were gratuitous and unnecessary....

Winner of the FIPRESCI Prize at the Cannes Film Festival, TONI ERDMANN is a story about a unique man.
After the death of his dog, Winfried decides to visit his daughter Ines. A practical joker, he loves to annoy his daughter with corny pranks that she finds maddening, and he distracts her from her job.
Enter flashy ‘Toni Erdmann’, Winfried’s smooth-talking alter ego. Disguised in a tacky suit, weird wig and even weirder fake teeth, Toni barges into Ines’ professional life, claiming to be her CEO’s life coach. Ines meets the challenge, and in all the madness, begins to understand that her eccentric father might deserve some place in her life after all.
