Based on 3 short stories by Isaac Bashevis Singer, this film 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 a anchored in a long-time relationship with Reisel (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 Pena), which give way to a real-life encounter with a former student (Barbara Hershey) and a painful interlude (Tovah Teldsuh). Jan Schutte directs.
