The Big Hit
Etienne, an often-out-of-work but endearing actor, runs a theatre workshop in a prison, where he brings together an unlikely troupe of prisoners to stage Samuel Beckett’s classic ‘Waiting for Godot’.
Ich Bin Dein Mensch
Alma (Maren Eggert) is a scientist at the famous Pergamon Museum in Berlin. In order to obtain research funds for her work, she is persuaded to participate in an extraordinary study. For three weeks, she has to live with a humanoid robot (Dan Stevens) tailored to her character and needs, whose artificial intelligence is designed to be the perfect life partner for her.
When the odd couple begins to cohabit, the robot is a catalyst for self-reflection and self-doubt in this comedy-drama that’s as thought-provoking as it is funny. A comic-tragic tale about the questions of love, longing and what makes a human being human, this is a sensationally funny and gentle science-fictional German rom-com.
