      Stephen Romei The Australian The home video footage of the young couple on Hydra, and of Cohen elsewhere, is fascinating to watch. Rated: 3.5/5 Dec 17, 2019 Full Review Paul Byrnes Sydney Morning Herald This film is different precisely because Broomfield was a long-time friend of Marianne. His heart is invested, which gives the film a welcome intimacy and warmth. Rated: 4/5 Dec 12, 2019 Full Review Tim Cogshell FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) Let's just call it "Leonard & Marianne," because it's just mostly about him. Oct 1, 2019 Full Review Richard Crouse Richard Crouse A sensitive and intimate portrayal of their time together, a love story that only spanned a handful of years but resonated for decades. Rated: 3.5/5 Jan 31, 2021 Full Review John Serba Decider A deeply moving account of a love story for the ages. Jul 21, 2020 Full Review Graeme Tuckett Stuff.co.nz If you are happy to embrace the myth, then you may find yourself quite moved by this film. But, if you were hoping for something a bit more clear-eyed and truthful, you may be as underwhelmed as I was. Rated: 3.5/5 May 14, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews

      m It was like stepping through a mirror and finding yourself in another time. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 08/04/19 Full Review Carol S I loved thismovie of perpetual romance as seen thru the eyes of hippie lovers in a free sex era. Hearts though are broken to weep tears of forlorn lovers scorn.... love yearning for containment in life... not meaning to hurt... but as time drufts by,,, the love is acknowledged between two hearts... moments before they both transpire. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 08/06/19 Full Review G K must see for old fans Rated 4 out of 5 stars 07/29/19 Full Review William B In one word- fabulous Rated 5 out of 5 stars 07/29/19 Full Review janine The full story is just amazing. I enjoyed every single minute of it! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 07/23/19 Full Review Janed S It was a solid presentation of the great love (and great pain) in the relationship between Marianne and Leonard, and somewhat explained the behaviors and beliefs that informed his music. If you love Cohens music, youll like the movie. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 07/23/19 Full Review Read all reviews
