TONI ERDMANN is a German comedy drama in which a man tries to reconnect with his daughter by accompanying her on a business trip.

Language

There is occasional strong language ('f**k'). Milder bad language includes 'shit' and 'ass'.

Nudity

A woman holds a party, which her guests are asked to attend naked. Bare breasts are visible throughout the scene, while a man's penis and a woman's pubic hair are also briefly seen. Nothing sexual occurs and the nudity is not presented in a sexualised manner.

Sex

A scene of male masturbation, which occurs in front of a woman, is conveyed only by arm movements and by accompanying sounds and verbal references, after which the man's flaccid penis is briefly visible. It is subsequently suggested that the watching woman eats a cake on which the man's semen has landed.

Drugs

A brief scene shows characters snorting cocaine from a mirror and rubbing the drug onto their gums.

Other issues include a brief bloody moment when a woman bursts a blood blister on her toe and sprays some of the blood onto her blouse.

This work contains flashing images which may affect viewers who are susceptible to photosensitive epilepsy.
