A prose poem read by Leonard Cohen from his novel Beautiful Losers to the accompaniment of diverse photographs and other illustrations. While the poet reads, the camera moves in and out of the pictures, often with surrealistic effect. He reads four times; each time the emotional effect is different because of his rendition or the accompanying visuals.
