Re: Movies with Leonard or his songs to be screened in New York City

Hi Einat, 'Beware of a whole whore' is a movie by Fassbinder from 1970. The English title is a literal translation of the German one. Here's what is says about the movie on the Anthology Film Archives website: "BEWARE OF A HOLY WHORE by Rainer Werner Fassbinder In German with English subtitles, 1970...

Please see below an excerpt from their website, where you also can find additional information: anthologyfilmarchives.org Film Screen...

Re: Happy Birthday, Leonard!

In Germany we have a saying "Wir werden nicht älter, sondern besser!" - We don't get older, but better! I had to think of that on the occasion of Leonard Cohen's 80th birthday. While he has created fantastic songs throughout his life and presented them to enthusiastic audiences, certainly the latest...

Re: Esther Cohen

What sad news – and what a way to re-enter the website after an extended holiday in Europe, which began with my participation in the Leonard Cohen Event in Dublin – my first, and really marvelous, as many have described elsewhere on the site. I had the privilege of meeting Esther twice, and both tim...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: BERLIN (July, 17)

I came across another review at http://drhguy.com/2013/07/19/perfekt-leonard-cohen-berlin-2013/. It appeared in the Berlin regional edition of BILD [‘picture’] – the biggest German tabloid with several million readers.

Re: CONCERT REPORT: HAMBURG, JULY 14

There was another review. It appeared on 15 July in the Hamburg regional edition of BILD [‘picture’] – the biggest German tabloid with several million readers. The text is the same short one by dpa as that in the Hamburger Abendblatt of 14 July 2013, which I translated earlier. The headline is sligh...

Here are two more reviews: One in a the Berlin tabloid "Berliner Kurier", the other one in "Die Welt" [The World], a newspaper that is distributed throughout Germany. The latter is an edited version of the review "Old master Leonard Cohen sings his life's work in Berlin" in "Berliner Morgenpost" tha...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: BERLIN (July, 17)

Salut notevenasuit, Just to clarify the statements in my earlier post are not my opinions. I have only translated the article by Katrin Warnstedt in the newspaper 'Berliner Morgenpost'. I actually find especially the last sentence of her article rather silly. I myself have been to three concerts of ...
