It's the summer of 1994, and the streets of New York are pulsing with hip-hop.

Though approaching his eighties, Max Kohn shows no signs of slowing down. He pursues his love life - both real and imagined - with youthful vigor, thereby risking his relationship to Reisel, the woman he loves but neglects. LOVE COMES LATELY is a film about real and imagined longings, the never ending dream of love and the power of fiction. Written by
zero fiction film
We saw the film at the hamburg filmfest, it was lovely, warm and entertaining and gave a complete different idea about love and age. The main actor Otto Tausig is outstanding, very funny and charming. The story is based on three Isaak Bashevis Singer short stories and merges them very beautifully and organic into one script. The photography of the film is stunning, and it shows America in a different, maybe a little European light (the film has been shot in New York, New England, Florida and California). The music, composed by Henning Lohner from LA and Berlin, was great as well. . Really worthwhile seeing! Josef Sigmund, Hamburg
