Winifried, a divorced retired piano-teacher and persistent prankster, decides to leave the comforts of his German suburbs to spring a surprise visit on his estranged career-driven daughter Inès, who lives in Bucharest. She is far from pleased with this intrusion into her life and what follows is not just a hilarious exploration of a father-daughter relationship. Award-winning director Maren Ade delivers a story that is warm, surprising and deeply human, with exceptional performances from leads Peter Simonischek and Sandra Hüller making this a must-see.
