I'M YOUR MAN - FILM REVIEW
Alma is an archaeologist struggling with her personal life. She is persuaded by her boss to be a guinea pig for a new high-tech scheme, a companion robot programmed to be infinitely considerate and obliging. The promise of someone (or thing) who/which will attend to all her emotional and physical needs is enticing.
I enjoyed the twists and turns as humanoid Dan and Alma wrestle in their growing relationship, Alma exploring “what it means to be human.”
What genre – Sci-Fi, Comedy, Romance? Combine all three.
I laughed out loud as many in the audience did, delighting in this light-hearted playful and thoughtful romp. Understated with unexpected turns, the movie poses a few profound questions without lessening the levity.
My vote is 8/10
Filmed on location in Berlin with English subtitles
