The story of a man whose
imagination took control...
love comes lately | A film by Jan Schütte
Based on short stories by
Nobel Prize Winner Isaac Bashevis Singer
Based on three short stories by Isaac Bashevis Singer (Yentl), Love
Comes Lately braids fiction, fantasy, and autobiography into a bittersweet
comedy-drama pitting the self-renewing power of male ego and libido against
the inevitable physical decline of age.
Though anchored in a long-time relationship with Reisel (Cheers and
Taxi's Rhea Perlman), octogenarian author Max Kohn (Otto Tausig) uses his
frequent book tours as opportunities to let erotic imagination take flight.
There are fantasy flings with a needy widow (Caroline Aaron) and a Cuban
housekeeper (Elizabeth Peña Lone Star), which then give way to a real-life
intimate encounter with a former student (Barbara Hershey The Stunt Man).
Finally, a fondly recalled but painful interlude with a free spirited woman
(Tovah Feldsuh Kissing Jessica Stein) challenges Max's peace of mind even
as it feeds his work
In Love Comes Lately, writer-director Jan Schütte "has gone above and
beyond the call of dutiful adaptation" (Andrew Sarris, The New York
Observer), using "excellent visual correlatives for the blurring of the line
between Max and his writing" (Variety), to create an "atmospheric,
exhilaratingly ambitious chamber piece" (Village Voice) and "a sympathetic
portrait of late life lust and romance" (Time Out).
Admirably grown-up tale, with its keen sympathy for autumnal sentiments,.. Offer(s) mellow counterprogramming to frivolous summer fare." - Nathan Lee New York Times
"AN EXHILARATINGLY AMBITIOUS CHAMBER PIECE..."
