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.
Immensely enjoyable, intriguing and complex.

SCREEN INTERNATIONAL
A comedy-drama that's as thought-provoking as it is funny.
Anna Smith

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. Thus, 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...

Taking inspiration from a short story by Emma Braslavsky, and sharing DNA with Spike Jonze’s Her, 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.
