A deep dive into the myth of Leonard Cohen, the singer’s defining relationship with Marianne Ihlen, and prolific documentarian Nick Broomfield’s own personal connection to Cohen’s famous lover and muse.

Nick Broomfield’s evocative memoir traces the enduring relationship between Leonard Cohen and Marianne Ihlen, the inspiration behind such seminal songs in the folksinger’s oeuvre as ‘So Long, Marianne’. Traversing time, from the early 1960s when the pair first met on Hydra, a sun- and drug-drenched Greek island that attracted a coterie of expat artists, until their deaths three months apart in 2016, this documentary is rich with archival material and insider knowledge. Broomfield knew and was one of Ihlen’s lovers back in the day, and he charts “a love story that had fifty chapters without being together.” Essential viewing, whether you’re a Cohen fan or not.

"As much poetry as documentary – a gentle, rhapsodic film… and a moving portrait of a love that still resonates." - Steve Pond, The Wrap
