Director Nick Broomfield is known for his innovative and influential work in documentary film, particularly in docs about the world of music. He’s also known for sometimes becoming a character of sorts in his own films. So it’s a little surprising that in his newest project, Marianne & Leonard: Words of Love, he largely stays out of the frame, since this might be his most personal film yet — he was a personal friend of Marianne Ihlen, Leonard Cohen’s Norwegian muse in the ‘60s.
Marianne and Leonard’s was a bittersweet but powerful love story, the doomed-but-beautiful sort that seems made for the movies. She inspired a number of his biggest songs, but the tragic and tumultuous nature of their relationship would pull them apart even as it linked them forever. Marianne & Leonard: Words of Love follows the pair from their early days on the Greek island of Hydra as part of a bohemian community of foreign artists, writers, and musicians, to how their love evolved when Leonard became a successful musician. Along the way we learn of the heartache that surrounded them, the highs and lows of Leonard’s career, and the inspirational power that Marianne possessed.
