Maria Schrader

Ich bin dein Mensch (I Am Your Man)

105' - 2021 - Science Fiction, Comedy, Romance - Dialogue: German
Director: Maria Schrader Composer: Tobias Wagner With: Maren Eggert, Dan Stevens, Sandra Hüller, Hans Löw
Alma (Maren Eggert) is a scientist at the famous Pergamon Museum in Berlin. In order to obtain research funds for her work, she is persuaded to participate in an extraordinary study. For three weeks, she has to live with a humanoid robot tailored to her character and needs, whose artificial intelligence is designed to be the perfect life partner for her. Alma meets Tom (Dan Stevens), a machine in human form in a class of its own, created solely to make her happy. Ich bin dein Mensch is a playful comic-tragic tale about the questions of love, longing and what makes a human being human.
"Unorthodox-director Maria Schrader makes a witty, thought-provoking return to features in this fusion of science fiction and modern romance. (...) The appealingly peculiar result lands somewhere between Ex Machina and Toni Erdmann on the tonal spectrum, if you can imagine such a hybrid." - Variety
