    I can´t remember what it was, but that`s “Prototype”. Guess it has something to do with the fact that the young guy is a robot.

      That was a fast one again, Kueperpunk at his best :-) Congratulations! Yes, it is ‘Prototype’ (Greene 1983), and yes, the uneasy situation has to do with Michael (David Morse) being an android. It’s early in the movie, Dr. Carl Forrester (Christopher Plummer) has brought the prototype Michael home—without Forrester’s wife Dorothy (Frances Sternhagen) knowing. Forrester wants to see if Michael passes as a human. He does, but Dorothy serves dinner. Michael can’t eat, doesn’t want to be rude, but can’t tell that he is a machine either. Finally, when his wife goes into the kitchen for a minute, the doctor pours the salad from Michael’s plate upon his own.
