Dolph Lundgren has come back home to Stockholm to show German actor Ralph Herforth around town. As usual Lundgren appears in his best physical form when the two men start their trip with a Karate session with Lundgren's former trainer Brian Fitkin. In the course of the evening however Lundgren turns out to be a sophisticated and entertaining conversationalist: At dinner it's politics, in the car it's about the family. He displays a profound knowledge on history when visiting the museum of armour, he remisces about the NY art scene in the 80s when they call at designer Thomas Bernstrand's flat. The film shows Dolph Lundgren as you may not have seen him before - or as you might never see him again.
Did You Know?
Director Hasko Baumann
was so ill during the shooting that Dolph Lundgren
was actually shocked to see the state he was in when they met. He gave him a cocktail of different pills to help him make it through the evening. The medicine was from Spain so Baumann never could make out what he was taking, but actually felt better. See more
Footwork, Dolph. Footwork!
I don't have footwork. I don't need it with this guy!
The German Into the Night DVD box set includes a long sequence not in the TV version that shows Dolph and Ralph visit an empty theatre where a jazz trio plays. There is also a scene that shows Dolph picking up Brian Fitkin and a friend after Ralph has left for his hotel in which Dolph talks very unfavorably about the German crew and Ralph Herforth. When Fitkin and the friend point out that the camera might still be running, Dolph replies "If that is true, I can never go to Germany again." See more
