I’m Your Man

Maria Schrader, Germany, 2021

Maren Eggert, Dan Stevens, Sandra Hüller Rated 15 Run time 108 mins

A film about A.I., consciousness, love and relationships. Alma (Maren Eggert) is an archaeologist who agrees to test out an android, Tom (Dan Stevens, speaking excellent German), who is programmed to be the perfect fit for her emotionally and intellectually.  After a couple of teething problems, she takes him home – but things don’t all go to plan. Intriguing and very amusing from beginning to end.
