FILM: MARIANNE & LEONARD

Leonard Cohen met his norwegian muse Marianne Ihlen on a Greek island in the beginning of the 1960’s. Here, the young Cohen fought for his dream to become a writer, and Marianne fought with a broken marriage, and was alone with her young son. It became the beginning of an epic love story  – and from it sprung legendary songs like ‘So Long, Marianne’ and ‘Bird on a Wire’, when Cohen later changed path and became a singer. A tumultuous but close relationship which follow them both through life. Through old film clips and interviews the British docu veteran Nick Broomfield unravels the beautiful and romantic history to the very last and hearatbreaking line. Tickets can be bought here.
