This informal black-and-white portrait of Leonard Cohen shows him at age 30 on the verge of music stardom on a visit to his hometown of Montreal, where the poet, novelist and songwriter comes "to renew his neurotic affiliations." He reads his poetry to an enthusiastic crowd, strolls the streets of the city, relaxes in this three-dollar-a-night hotel room and even takes a bath. 'm Your Man Set to the Leonard Cohen song of the same name, this irreverent animated film plays on the conventions and clichés of romance. Dir.
