Marianne & Leonard: Words of Love Rated 12A

Marianne & Leonard: Words of Love

Dir. Nick Broomfield. USA, 2019. 1h 42m. Starring Marianne Ihlen, Leonard Cohen, Judy Collins, Helle Goldman, Richard Vick.

The beautiful yet tragic love story between legendary songwriter Leonard Cohen and his Norwegian "muse" Marianne Ihlen. BAFTA Award-winning filmmaker Nick Broomfield, who knew Marianne in the late 1960s, documents their relationship from the early days in Greece, through the days of 'free love', to the time when Leonard became a big star.

‘What makes this film unmissable, however, is the fact that we get Marianne’s story more or less in full as well. It’s a fleshing out of someone who was more than just a muse’ ★★★★ David Fear, Rolling Stone

‘While Broomfield’s films often take a sardonic, close-to-cynical tone, “Marianne & Leonard” is admiring, affectionate and a little awe-struck.’ Glenn Kenny, The New York Times
