Summarising Toni Erdmann in a few lines would be like trying to solve the Enigma Code in under thirty minutes. What is this film truly about? Who is it really about? Well, I’d say that’s subjective. It depends on who you are. A father, whose children have grown up? Or maybe you’re a son or daughter who has moved away from home and never has the time to call anymore. Either way, this film will resonate with whoever is watching.
As young students at university, it can be difficult to picture a world where you have nothing, no-one, and no help. Ken Loach’s film, I, Daniel Blake outstandingly depicts a brutal yet real-life image of what poverty in the UK is really like.
