It sounded, sounds and will sound in every corner of the world, at weddings and funerals, in countless films and television shows—“Hallelujah” is, to many, an important song in the soundtrack of their lives. Even if they don’t even know that its author was Leonard Cohen and the fact that the Canadian troubadour took seven years to finish writing it. This documentary tells the curious odyssey of the song and its fate, from the unbelievable initial rejection and lack of support from the label to its rediscovery and success thanks to the —even more unbelievable— promotion given to it by the film Shrek —in its version by John Cale— for new generations. With an impressive amount of never-before-seen archive footage, directors seal reaffirm even more the history and mystical figure of one of the most incandescent cultural phenomena of the 20th century.
