Very interesting...and very creepy!
24 September 2008 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

This short film reminds me of an old "Twilight Zone" episode. It's the one where a guy is banished to a planet and is all alone. One of the guys who brings supplies feels sorry for him and leaves him a robotic wife to keep him company. In MODEL MAN, you have a similar concept, but instead a nerdy scientist doesn't have time or the ability to have a real relationship, so she builds a robotic man. The only trouble is, unlike the "Twilight Zone" wife, this guy is unable to feel, be spontaneous or truly love.

The film had two big strikes against it. First, the idea, while interesting, was also rather creepy. Seeing this lady sleeping with what is essentially a wind-up doll is a bit unsettling. Second, I have to say that the lady who played the scientist was simply too way too beautiful for the part. It wasn't very believable that this seemingly perfect lady couldn't find a partner. While very talented, I'd love to see her in a real romantic film.
