Complete Storyline and information about I’m Your Man
In the not-too-distant future in Germany: scientist Alma (Maren Eggert) works for Berlin’s Pergamon Museum, studying Sumerian cuneiform writings, but like many of her guild, she keeps having trouble raising the necessary research funds. A well-paid study is supposed to solve the money worries, even though it involves an unusual experiment: For three weeks, Alma is to let a robot from the Terrareca company, which has a human appearance, into her life.
So Alma opens the door to Tom (Dan Stevens), an artificial intelligence whose only goal is to respond to her needs and make her happy – he is programmed to be the perfect partner for her. Since he is specially tailored to her character, it shouldn’t really be a problem to let a machine spoil her for three weeks. However, even getting to know each other for the first time brings technical difficulties; after all, this is all still a test run. But can something like a relationship ever grow out of a product test?
