KINO! Film Salon: I’m Your Man
KINO! Film Salon is a monthly online film club to discuss German film.
How it works: Each month we choose a German film or series currently available to stream, watch it independently, and come together for a hosted conversation with other fans of German film.
In November we’ll talk about I’m Your Man by Maria Schrader, which is available to stream in the U.S. on platforms including Prime Video and Apple TV. The film is Germany’s contender for nomination to the 2022 Academy Award for Best International Feature Film.
Alma (Maren Eggert) is a scientist at the famous Pergamon Museum in Berlin. To secure funding for her research, she accepts an offer to participate in an extraordinary experiment. For three weeks, she is to live with a humanoid robot who has been designed to become her ideal life partner. Enter Tom (Dan Stevens), a machine in handsome human form, created to make Alma happy. What ensues is a tragicomic tale that explores notions of love, longing, and what makes us human.
