Do androids dream of candlelit romance?

Well, maybe if that’s what they’re programmed for. Dan Stevens and Maren Eggert star in I’m Your Man, a sci-fi rom-com about a humanoid robot designed to be the perfect life partner. 

Check out the trailer for the film below.

This German language film (original title: Ich bin dein Mensch) comes from award-winning director Maria Schrader. The trailer introduces us to Alma, a woman willing to go along with this robot-romance social experiment in order to secure funds for her own research. But when a robot looks like a person, talks like a person, and maybe even loves like a person… Well, the strict lines of humanity start to get a little blurry.

Here’s the official synopsis of I’m Your Man:

In order to obtain funds for her research, Alma (Eggert) participates in an extraordinary study. For three weeks she is required to live with Tom ( Stevens), a humanoid robot designed to be the perfect life partner for her, tailored to her character and needs. I’M YOUR MAN is a playful romance about relationships, love, and what it means to be human in the modern age.

Schrader wrote the film’s script along with Jan Schomberg. In addition to Eggert and Stevens, the film stars Sandra Hüller, Hans Löw, Wolfgang Hübsch, Annika Meier, Falilou Seck, Jürgen Tarrach, Henriette Richter-Röhl, and Monika Oschek.
