In the near future, certain things haven't changed - the path to ‘true love’ is just as winding and filled with pitfalls - but technology has made major strides. Romantic soul Theodore (Joaquin Phoenix) finds that telephone sex 2.0 and bizarre blind dates are unsatisfying. All this time, his soulmate turns out to be within reach.
Samantha is attentive, helpful, funny and intelligent. Well, artificially intelligent, because she is a revolutionary new operating system, blessed with the hoarse voice of Scarlett Johansson. After the flirting stage, elementary questions and reflections arise. What is the essence of love and identity? How much does the ideal lover change to match the partner? And above all: what next?
Jonze, his own solo scriptwriter for the first time, shows his most mature and romantic side. At the same time, Her is a declaration of love to the future Los Angeles: no smog or gridlock, but strolling people, parks and a streetcar stop at the beach. Audience Opening Film of IFFR 2014.
