The Toronto International Film Festival is still a couple weeks off, but the sales are already starting. indieWIRE is reporting that Love Comes Lately, which we just wrote about this morning, has been acquired by Fortissimo Films for "worldwide sales rights outside Germany." The film, directed by Jan Schuette, has this synopsis up on the prodco's website:

"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 imagined longings and the dream of love; about death and sex. It speaks of New York, its immigrants and the timelessness of the city."

According to indieWIRE, the film is based on a series of short stories by Polish author Isaac Bashevis Singer, who won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1978. The film's cast includes Otto Kaunig as Max Kohn, Rhea Perlman as Reisel, Elizabeth Pena and Barbara Hershey. No word on what the film sold for; hopefully Fortissimo will get a trailer out for the film pronto, so that we can have a closer look. We'll be keeping a weather eye out for ongoing news on TIFF films, including sales, official websites, posters and trailers, so check back for updates.
