In Maria Schrader’s new film I’m your man, screening at the 71st Berlinale in competition, Maren Eggert and Dan Stevens play respectively a scientist and a robot made exactly for her as part of a new experiment she has to evaluate. The at first awkward situation becomes slowly an occasion for the film and its audience to wonder about the meaning of love, relationship and the rules of attraction. The two actors elaborate on the film’s themes and reveal the lesson they learned from this experience.

I’m your man: Alma (Maren Eggert) 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 (Dan Stevens), a machine in human form in a class of its own, created solely to make her happy. I’m your man is a playful comic-tragic tale about the questions of love, longing and what makes a human being human.
