Toni Erdmann wins big at the 2016 European Film Awards

It was a big night for the German comedy-drama Toni Erdmann at the 2016 European Film Awards last night, with the film collecting five awards in Best European Film, Best European Director and Screenwriter (Maren Ade), Best European Actress (Sandra Huller) and Best European Actor (Peter Simonischek).

“It’s the first time a film made by a woman wins this award and it’s 2016,” said Ade when accepting her award. “I feel great luxury to make films at a time when we’re going through such crisis but I believe films can cross borders and easily transform the unfamiliar into empathy.”
