‘Marianne & Leonard: Words of Love’ Trailer Spotlights Leonard Cohen’s Transcendent Love

The genius and influence of Leonard Cohen’s work has been captured in documentary form before (2005’s Leonard Cohen I’m Your Man), but with Marianne & Leonard: Words of Love are given different and more intimate look at his life.

Leonard Cohen met Marianne Ihlen on the Greek island of Hydra in 1960, and during that time he was an unknown fiction writer. Ihlen was the mother of a young son and fixture in an expat scene in the community, and she became Cohen’s muse to several of his songs, most notably “So Long, Marianne.” 

Though these soulmates’ relationship would ultimately end in 1967, the pair would have a lifelong friendship that would last until their deaths in 2016. The documentary features previously unseen shot by Nick Broomfield (Whitney: Can I Be Me) and documentarian D.A. Pennebaker (Don’t Look Back).

Check out the trailer and tell us what you think!

Marianne & Leonard: Words of Love, directed by Broomfield, hits theaters July 5.
