'I'm Your Man' Star Dan Stevens on Dusting Off His German for 'Strange, Sweet, Weird' Film (Video)

TIFF 2021: ”It’s been a lifelong love of mine, the German language,“ actor tells TheWrap

In “I’m Your Man,” Stevens plays a humanoid robot designed to be the perfect man for Alma (Maren Eggert), who is taking part in the humanoid experiment to obtain research funds for her studies. The entire film, directed by Maria Schrader, is in German. Schrader co-wrote the script with Jan Schomburg, based on a short story by Emma Braslavksy.

Stevens also said that everyone on set of the “strange, sweet, weird” film spoke German — until the very last day when shooting wrapped and everyone praised the actor in English.

“Suddenly, everyone was like, that was fantastic, congratulations, and I was like, ‘wait, you all speak English?’” Stevens said. “They all spoke perfect English.”

“I’m Your Man” premiered at the Berlin Film Festival in March and is now at TIFF.
