Pop Up Kino is a monthly film series celebrating German cinema from the East to the West and from the Weimar period to the Contemporary. Throughout the year a curated selection of films will be screened at MATCH and introduced by a special guest presenter.
Pop Up Kino presents Maren Ade’s acclaimed comedy "Tony Erdmann".
Written and Directed by Maren Ade
Hardworking Ines reluctantly agrees to spend time with her estranged father when he unexpectedly reenters her life. Disguised in a tacky suit, wig, and fake teeth, Ines' father Winfried barges into her professional life pretending to be "Toni Erdmann" her CEO's life coach. As Toni, Winfried is bolder and doesn’t hold back, but Ines meets the challenge. The harder they push, the closer they become. In all the madness, Ines begins to understand that her eccentric father might deserve some place in her life after all.
