Cinema: Hallelujah - Leonard Cohen


Cinema: Hallelujah - Leonard Cohen

Leonard Cohen´s most famous song, "Hallelujah", has a long genesis behind it. The composer sat on the song for five years and wrote at least 150 verses for it - only then was he satisfied with his magnus opus.

He was surprised, however, by his label Columbia Records, which decided not to release the LP in America. For Cohen, this was a very personal defeat that led him into a creative crisis - but did nothing to diminish the song´s success. "Hallelujah" went its own way and, with the help of cover versions by Bob Dylan, John Cale and Jeff Buckley, became number one on the Billboard charts. To this day, the song is a perennial favourite and cannot be missed in any casting show and is often used as a wedding song or at funeral services. Directors Dan Geller and Dayna Goldfine have drawn an extensive portrait of Leonard Cohen using unpublished archive and interview material.
