I’m Your Man (CTC)

Research scientist Alma is persuaded to participate in a study: for three weeks she must live with a human-like robot designed solely to be her ideal companion.

Tom may be programmed to satisfy Alma, but he’s still in beta, and his learning curve is one of the many delights in this poignant comedy about love.

 

The new film from actress and Emmy Award-winning Director Maria Schrader (Unorthodox), I’m Your Man is a beguiling girl-meets-boy romantic comedy with a provocative twist.

Recently separated forty-something Alma (the effervescent Maren Eggert, in her Berlinale award-winning performance) is a research scientist at Berlin’s magnificent Pergamon Museum, and entirely dedicated to her work. Needing research funds, she’s persuaded by her supervisor to participate in an extraordinary study: for three weeks she must live with a human-like robot designed solely to be her ideal companion.

After an exhaustive survey of her preferences, Alma is introduced to the unflappably upbeat Tom (Downton Abbey’s Dan Stevens, in a revelatory performance), a handsome A.I. creation who’s programmed to adapt to her desires as they get to know each other, making him her perfect life partner.

Though thoroughly disinterested in Tom and dismissive of the project overall, Alma discovers that life can take us in unexpected directions…

Winner of multiple awards including the 2021 Silver Bear – Best Leading Performance and officially selected in the 2022 Academy Awards – Best International Feature (Germany), Schrader’s intriguing tragicomedy is a witty and nuanced take on the familiar odd-couple dynamic, questioning love, longing and what it takes to be human.

A film by MARIA SCHRADER

Stars MAREN EGGERT, DAN STEVENS, SANDRA HULLER

“A charming and intelligent comedy. Directed with empathy and precision, it’s a witty and moving look at human relationships. Funny, melancholy and smart, you can watch it to relax and be entertained and it will certainly deliver on those fronts — but there is also more going on beneath that manicured, charming façade than you might think at first glance.”
Catherine Bray, FILM OF THE WEEK

“Immensely enjoyable, intriguing and complex.”
Wendy Ide, SCREEN INTERNATIONAL

“A comedy-drama that’s as thought-provoking as it is funny.”
Anna Smith DEADLINE

“A science-fiction with soul and a romance written for adults. Just like its mechanical hero, this tender film is attractive, smart and cunningly designed to win your heart.”
Pamela Hutchinson EMPIRE MAGAZINE
