Toni Erdmann - Movie of 2016?

As I've repeatedly stated on this blog, great movies lift the soul and ask us to examine our own character in the broadest sense. If like me you're not looking for entertainment but for enhanced meaning, Toni Erdmann is off-the-charts-good.

It also has the only nudity scene in cinema that makes total sense. By that I mean we're not inclined to avert our eyes (prurient people excluded) but in some sense to remove our own clothes. For this Toni Erdmann is an extraordinary film. It also explains to us what it means to be a McKinsey consultant, for example, and what it takes to have skin in that game...oh and to be a father and a daughter too.

Great movie.
