I’m Your Man – 8.3

What if a robotics company could create a partner designed to satisfy your every need and desire. Would that make you truly happy? Or would you miss the sturm and drung of a “real” relationship? Or would you be frustrated, knowing your partner was only a robot? This is the existential issue posed by the sci-fi romance I’m Your Man and wonderfully acted by Maren Eggert, as a personally unfulfilled but professionally successful academician, and a German-speaking Dan Stevens, as the robot. Despite falling in love, despite her reservations, Alma reports that the experiment is not worth pursuing. But she is not really convinced, nor are we. Unlike most films in this, or most any, genre, the plot holes get filled in, rather than open up, as your thoughts continue after the film ends. And your thoughts do continue.
