Directed by celebrated documentary filmmaker Nick Broomfield; Marianne & Leonard – Words of Love is a beautiful yet tragic love story between Leonard Cohen and his Norwegian muse Marianne Ihlen. Their love began on the idyllic Greek island of Hydra in 1960 in a bohemian community of foreign artists, writers and musicians. Including never-before-seen footage, the film follows their relationship from the early days on Hydra, a humble time of ‘free love’ and open marriage, to how their love evolved when Leonard became a successful musician.

Marianne and Leonard’s was a love story that would continue for the rest of their lives, until they passed away, only three months apart from each other.
