Ahead of its upcoming UK premiere, the official UK trailer for Maria Schrader’s German language drama Ich bin dein Mensch (I’m Your Man) has been released, and it includes English subtitles.
I’m Your Man stars Maren Eggert as Alma and Dan Stevens as Tom. Alma 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, a machine in human form in a class of its own, created solely to make her happy.
This film is a comic-tragic tale about the questions of love, longing, and what makes a human being human.
Watch the trailer below.
The worldwide premiere of I’m Your Man took place earlier this year at the 71st Berlin International Film Festival, during which Eggert took home the Silver Bear for Best Leading Performance.
The North American premiere is set for the Toronto International Film Festival, which is being held from September 9-18. Bleecker Street acquired US rights for the film back in March but has not yet announced a planned release date.
I’m Your Man will land in theaters in the UK and on Curzon Home Cinema on August 13.
