Amusing tragicomedy about a scientist who has to live with a lifelike robot for her work.
To qualify for extra research funding, scientist Alma is persuaded to take part in a special experiment. For three weeks, she has to live with a lifelike robot, which is fully adapted to her personal needs and character. Tom, the mechanical equivalent of her perfect life partner, moves in with her. But while Tom does everything he can to make her happy, Alma has trouble accepting the devoted robot in her life.
Ich Bin Dein Mensch was the German Oscar submission for 2022. Lead actress Maren Eggert, who plays the role of Alma, received the first gender-neutral acting award at the Berlin Film Festival earlier this year.
