This entertaining and informative Leonard Cohen interview (commentary & subtitles in French. Cohen’s responses in English) takes place following the completion of his The Future album and includes portions of his songs as well as video clips of Cohen driving, working in his home studio, preparing food and drink in his kitchen, and singing an alternative version of Anthem while accompanying himself on keyboard. While the discussion touches on a number of topics, the focus is on Cohen’s songwriting, especially the multiple revisions each song undergoes before being pronounced ready for release.
