Love StoryFlorian Habicht, Frank Habicht, he People of New York City, Masha Yakovenko
Florian Habicht’s romantic comedy, written on the streets of New York, has been a hit with audiences and critics alike around the world. Love Story begins in New York when Florian meets a mysterious woman holding a piece of cake at a train station. Cutting to vox-pop interviews, Habicht asks complete strangers on the streets of New York what this could mean. With a resounding ‘cake means seduction’ coming from the people, Habicht relocates the woman (Masha Yakovenko, a Russian actress) and casts her opposite him in a unique take on the romantic comedy genre. The pair begins to act out a love story film, with the twist that each scene in the story is suggested by everyday people interviewed by Florian on the streets and cafes of New York.
