Marianne & Leonard: Words of Love (2019)

Reviewed by Jen Bremer (Library Staff)

This film follows the complex romance between Leonard Cohen and his muse, Marianne Ihlen from their first meeting in the sun drenched Greek island of Hydra to Marianne’s death just months before Cohen’s in 2016. Personal photographs and home videos as well as intimate interviews with the pair’s inner circle are enhanced by the brilliant direction of famed documentary filmmaker, Nick Broomfield. Broomfield himself being intimately connected to the couple adds to the films poignancy. For any music lover, or 1960s bohemian fan, this film is a must see.
