Even if someone does not know the man, they all know the song that made him world famous: Suzanne. Leonard Cohen is a musician, singer, writer; he is a master of melancholy; he is Canada’s answer to Bob Dylan. Lou Reed described him as being "an indispensible jewel" in the history of rock music. In 2008 he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame. It was then that Cohen made the surprise announcement that he was returning to the stage after 15 years away from it. Today, two years and some 100 concerts later, the now 75-year-old has performed before more than two million people worldwide.
Based on many conversations with Leonard Cohen and backed up by numerous illustrations, the authority on Cohen, Christof Graf, tells in "Leonard Cohen - Titan of Words" the story of the life of "the angel murmuring along the dark fringes of poetry" (Süddeutsche Zeitung) in the form of a biography and a documentary.
