Despite being one of the most original composers and poets of the modern age, Leonard Cohen's muse is legendary. A man of deep and meditative thought, Cohen has always been inspired and influenced by those he is affected by - musicians, poets, writers, lovers - but he has never 'borrowed' from the work of his idols. His muse is a spiritual energy which inspires him to establish his own magical creations. This film explores the work of Leonard Cohen in conjunction with the influences that have proven most important in his life and work. From Garcia Lorca to Bob Dylan via Jacques Brel and the Dalai Lama - along with many others - are here shown to be the one element in Leonard's work which are constant but which remain invisible. Featuring many new interviews, rare footage and performances plus the finest yet most unusual narrative to grace a film on this pioneering spirit, "Leonard Cohen: The Daughters of Zeus" is all at once fascinating, revealing, entertaining and unique.
