An odd love story with Indie style and interesting characters..., 24 September 2002
Author: Emerald from United States

I caught "Looking for Leonard" at the Stoney Brook Film Festival, and loved it. Kim Huffman plays a woman who wants to be a writer but makes a living robbing stores with her boyfriend and his brother. Joel Bissonnette is a Czech computer programmer who comes to Montreal on the promise of a job, only to arrive and find that the company no longer exists. Their paths cross and their lives are transformed: by death, by danger, and by love.

Interspersed with documentary clips of Leonard Cohen set to punk music, this film has a flavor and style that you just can't find in all those big budget films. Driven by interesting characters, skillful directing and camera work, and top quality acting, this film is a perfect example of what Canada has to offer.
