Films About Father-Daughter Relationships

film reviews | movies | features | BRWC Films About Father-Daughter Relationships

The latest feature from acclaimed writer-director Maren Ade, Toni Erdmann is a remarkably touching and outrageously funny portrait of an offbeat father-daughter relationship. But fathers with on-screen daughters are a rarity – most stories feature father-son relationships. The films that do celebrate the special bond between a father and daughter are often the most remarkably poignant, moving stories.

To celebrate the release of Toni Erdmann, in cinemas 3 February, we’ve rounded up the best father-daughter duos on screen.

Toni Erdmann (2017)

Sandra Hüller plays Ines, a highly-strung career woman whose life in corporate Bucharest takes a turn for the bizarre with the arrival of her estranged father Winfried (Peter Simonischek). A practical joker with a liking for silly disguises and childish pranks, Winifried attempts to reconnect with his daughter by introducing the eccentric alter ego Toni Erdmann to catch Ines off guard, not knowing how capable she is of rising to the challenge. The breakout hit of last year’s Cannes Film Festival and the recipient of universal critical acclaim, Toni Erdmann is as humanist as it is absurdist – a comedy about the importance of celebrating the humour of the everyday.
