Filmed at the King Edward Hotel Toronto
5 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Written by Leonard Cohen and Mark Shekter, this 25 min video is based on the reminiscences of a hotel - and filmed in some rooms of the King Edward Hotel, Toronto......This NTSC VHS video was released in 1996 in Canada and we can only find it in Montreal...... Leonard Cohen plays a (long term) resident of the hotel. Each song is depicted by a little visual story involving some of the guests. There are no words other than those in the songs. "Memories" is set to a dance (like a prom) with Cohen up on stage leading the band. The two dancers that are featured in this vignette are very good (the bellboy and a hotel maid in the film). Choreography by Ann Ditchburn. The video won the Golden Rose international television award in Montreux, Switzerland. English Language Songs include The Guests....Memories.....The Gypsy's wife.....Chelsea Hotel # 2....Suzanne...The jacket is English......We stopped buying ex-rentals of this in 2002.....most have been tampered with.....
