Angela
Manhattan- as it is every day of the week, year in, year out. Life is pretty routine for Bob, about to turn 70, yet aching for one last fling. Maybe his shrink is right: he should place an ad in the paper and just go out and look for someone. Someone like Angela. Because: This is New York.... Anything can happen... The sky's the limit...
Kollek's main topic - life, love and longing in the Big Apple - is omnipresent in his film work.
"My style has changed over the years", responded Amos Kollek to a query about his considerable talents. "What else can I say? You'll just have to see for yourself."

Powers
Peter has a dream job. He's a popular magician in a posh Prague night-club, whose act draws more applause than the strippers. He's got an eye-catching assistant who is ready and willing to soothe his frayed nerves whenever necessary. But he's also got Sylvia hanging around his neck: a pert, scatterbrained sister who forgets that a roll in the hay may just be worth a wedding ring. Things take a turn for the better (or worse?) when he discovers he possesses extra, one might say, supernatural powers that enable him to see into the future, hear music by rubbing his finger over a CD, and God knows what else.
So, what's the problem? Unfortunately, Peter can't control anything anymore the way he used to. This includes his magic act, his love life, and his sister's latest erotic fantasy.
