Re: Another film about Marianne's life & Leonard & Hydra

Jarkko & Anne, thank you so much for providing the information about this new film, with the Vimeo link to the film itself :!: I have now watched the whole 2 hours plus of this film and, despite quite a bit of it being in Norwegian, have to say it was such a powerful experience that beautifully show...

Re: "Thanks for the dance" - the new album

Additional info on 'The Night of Santiago' As ProfNowlin has indicated in his earlier post, 'The Night of Santiago' is based on a Frederico Garcia Lorca poem entitled 'The Unfaithful Wife', which I found a few translations of, each a bit different. Nevertheless, it’s interesting to see how it’s been...

Re: "Thanks for the dance" - the new album

Sophia, thanks for that very interesting and pertinent information, which resolves the mystery... and it's nice to know that the Cohen father and son connection with Greece is manifest in such a lovely collaborative way in this instance! 8) I must admit too that I'd missed seeing Mariza Rizou's name...

Re: "Thanks for the dance" - the new album

This album is growing on me so much , though several tracks were immediately appreciated on first listening. As is usually the case, this album doesn't fail to resonate within the deepest recesses of my being... and I just keep playing it over and over. 8) Maarten, thanks for posting Sony's detailed...

Re: Marianne & Leonard: Words of Love, film by Nick Broomfield

Hi Bev, I just listened to that Sylvie Simmons interview. Whilst she was disappointed in the film, what she says I think is very fair and balanced; it contextualizes the relationship itself and how it is judged from her knowledge of them both and the era they lived in. 8) In my comments in the earli...

Re: Marianne & Leonard: Words of Love, film by Nick Broomfield

Bev, in response to your musing re whether any of us Melbournians had seen this film, I did indeed see it at the Melbourne International Film Festival, but wasn't sure about posting my thoughts here for one of the reasons I outline below. I really enjoyed it, it spoke to me personally in an emotiona...

For Melbourne based folk, or those within striking distance who would travel to catch it (and perhaps other festival films) on the big screen, this doco is being screened at the Melbourne International Film Festival on two days: Tues, Aug 6th; Sat, Aug 10th. 8) http://miff.com.au/program/film/marian...

Re: Half the Perfect World - Writers, Dreamers and Drifters on Hydra, 1955–1964

Having read the book and been totally engrossed by it, I'm really looking to this movie production. 8) It will be interesting to see whom they cast in the various roles... and I just hope they try to ensure (as far as is possible) that it's a Canadian young Leonard look-alike who undertakes his role...

Re: Esther Ofarim

A friend of mine recently unearthed Esther singing 'Cinderella Rockafella' and shared this with me. :D I then remembered Esther's face was somehow familiar, realizing that this was so, not because I had seen her doing covers of Leonard's songs, which are fantastic renditions I've now been privy to 8...

Album cover reproductions

A Cohenite friend of mine, Grant Telford, whom some of you will remember from the Berlin Event in 2006, has created a number of beautiful stained glass acetate print reproductions of various artists' album covers, including a few of Leonard's, as per the attached photos. 8) He sells them for £20 eac...
