Marianne And Leonard (12A) 102mins

A story of enduring love between Leonard Cohen and his Norwegian muse, Marianne Ihlen. Filmmaker Nick Broomfield chronicles their relationship, from the early days in Greece to how their love evolved when Leonard became a successful musician.

Marianne & Leonard: Words of Love is renowned filmmaker Nick Broomfield's most personal and romantic film of his storied career. The documentary starts on the Greek island of Hydra in 1960, where Leonard Cohen, then a struggling and unknown fiction writer, and Marianne Ihlen, a single mother with a young son, became part of community of expat artists, writers and musicians. Never-before-seen footage shot by Broomfield and legendary documentarian D.A. Pennebaker make for a unique portrait of an idyllic 1960's bohemia. It was a time that left a lasting imprint on both Marianne and Leonard, whose friendship would last another fifty years before their deaths in 2016.

 

this is just lovely’ ****The Times

‘riveting…a vivid snapshot of an era and a complicated, mysterious love story’ ****The Guardian

'Footage of Marianne on her deathbed, listening to a tender message from Cohen, leaves one all of a pleasant ache. The pair were haplessly toxic. Warm and sexy, they were also united by their love of words to the end' ****London Evening Standard

'Using personal photos and brief snatches of home-video footage, [Broomfield] has tenderly delved into the Leonard-Marianne relationship and assembled one of his most poetic, beguiling films.' ****The Telegraph
