MARIANNE & LEONARD: WORDS OF LOVE
Dir. Nick Broomfield | Documentary | U.S.A. | 2019 | 1 hr. 42 min.
The striking love story began on the idyllic Greek island of Hydra, in a bohemian community of artists, writers, and musicians. Canadian singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen met Marianne Ihlen, the Norwegian who would become his muse. It was a relationship that cast a long shadow in both of their lives, from their early days of free love to well after Cohen became a global success. Mixing vintage concert clips and behind-the-scenes glimpses with the reminiscences of close friends and colleagues, master documentarian Nick Broomfield deftly weaves the highs and lows of Cohen’s career with the inspirational power that Marianne possessed.
