MARIANNE & LEONARD WORDS OF LOVE | Official Trailer | Roadside Attractions


When trying to… …learn some things… …about love. When your woman… …becomes her own content, …and you become her content, …that’s love. The woman who inspired the songwriter and poet, Leonard Cohen… …to write some of his best known work… …has died. Dearest Marianne, …I’m just a little behind you, …close enough to take your hand. When this love letter came from Leonard, …I think she felt that it was all completed. Poets, they’re just elusive… …creatures who are married to their muse. It was a love story which… …had fifty chapters without… …being together. Lots of people came to Hydra, …artists, Jacqueline Kennedy, Princess Margaret. There was so much freedom there. She didn’t really enjoy being beautiful before she met Leonard, …and he made her love living. She carried with her a different feel that I ever saw around Leonard. It felt like anything was possible. Their dream life in Hydra… …had a big interruption, Leonard discovered himself as a singer. She wanted to be with him, …and you cannot be with Leonard. He always had that feeling… …that he was after something that he couldn’t get his hands around. So much of his writing was about his relationships with women. He could make women feel good about themselves, …but he couldn’t give himself to them… …because he couldn’t give himself away. They… …have this place for each other… …’til the very end. That’s what… …words of love can do.
