I’m Your Man (2021)

Not long into I’m Your Man, Dan Stevens’ character, a genial android named Tom, arranges a perfectly contrived combination of romantic clichés for his would-be partner, Alma. The rose petals are “artfully” strewn, the candles flicker, and flutes of bubbly are ready for sipping beside the bubble-filled tub. “Ninety-three percent of German women dream of this,” he assures her as she exits the room, profoundly unimpressed. Tom is programmed to satisfy Alma, a German human, but he’s still in beta, and his learning curve is one of the oddball delights of this farcical and poignant comedy about love.

Sheri Linden, The Hollywood Reporter

The appealingly peculiar result lands somewhere between Ex Machina and Toni Erdmann on the tonal spectrum, if you can imagine such a hybrid. (…) Squint slightly at the screen and you can just about envision Sandra Bullock in an Americanized version of this material, if not for a script that repeatedly wraps formula in philosophy, defamiliarizing matters in the process.
