PRESENTED IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THE EMBASSY OF THE FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF GERMANY
Tom (Dan Stevens) is among the first of a new line of humanoid robots. He is designed to be the perfect life partner by being specifically tailored to his human match’s personality and needs. In order to obtain funds for her research, German scientist Alma (Maren Eggert) reluctantly agrees to “test drive” Tom by having him live with her for three weeks.
I’m Your Man is a playful romance that defies the familiar romantic comedy format to ask some deeper questions about what it means to be human, and what it takes to be happy in a relationship. British actor Dan Stevens, best known for TV’s Downton Abbey and films like The Guest and Beauty and the Beast, impresses with his fluency in German. And fans of Toni Erdmann (previously presented by the German Embassy at the ANUFG) will enjoy seeing Sandra Hüller as Tom’s handler.
