Leonard Cohen-"Caro Diario" (Dear Diary) film-"I'm Your Man"

Post by sturgess66 » Sat Mar 13, 2010 7:10 pm

I wondered if anyone here had seen this movie - "Caro Diario" (Dear Diary) in which "I'm Your Man" (Leonard Cohen singing) :D is part of the soundtrack? I did a search here but couldn't find anything.

This is a video of a bit from the movie on YouTube - the part where Leonard is singing "I'm Your Man" - :D

But, as well as having a Leonard Cohen song as part of the soundtrack, according to comments left by people at YouTube, it is also apparently a very good movie - or at the very least is wonderful to watch because of the Italian scenery. And as noted below, it won an award for the scenery at the Cannes Film Festival.

I'm Your Man

A film directed by Nanni Moretti. Story of a hot summer in Rome. Cohen's song is playing while Moretti is riding a scooter through Rome. Awarded for the best scenario at the Festival de Cannes. 100 min.

The scenery is wonderful in this video, but a bit jarring - all the grafitti on those archeological treasures :shock: !
Linda, you keep finding all this stuff and bringing it to our attention - thank you!

Great and famous film.

Saw it long ago - wasn't that the same scene when Moretti comes (on the vespa) to the field where Pier Paolo Pasolini (one of my favourite artists) was killed?
