  • An affectionate and intimate celebration of the acclaimed troubadour in stirring music and words. show more

  • The accolades are typically gushing - Bono likens Cohen to Byron and Shelley. show more

  • It's a fleeting but memorable image in a film that defines Leonard Cohen largely through the admiration of fellow artists, who performed his songs at a tribute concert last year at the opera house in Sydney, Australia. Their admiration borders on the reverential, but reverence doesn't get in the way of their performances, which are varied, impassioned and thrilling.
