WINNER OF THE BERLINALE SOLVER BEAR PRIZE FOR BEST PERFORMANCE BY ACTRESS MAREN EGGERT
Dan Stevens (Downton Abbey, Beauty and the Beast) shines in this fun and futuristic screwball comedy from Maria Schrader (Unorthodox). Alma (Maren Eggert), an uptight career-focused research scientist, is persuaded to participate in an unusual study to obtain funding for her work. For three weeks she must live with a humanoid robot (Stevens) who’s been engineered to be her ideal life partner. Already sceptical about artificial intelligence and love she writes off the experiment immediately, but can she resist her companion’s charms? This playful and refreshing take on the AI love story is joyfully funny, with marvellous chemistry between Eggert and Stevens as odd couple Alma and Tom.
“Stevens... gives the finest performance of his post-Downton Abbey career - and almost entirely in German to boot.”- The Telegraph ★★★★
