“Two Worlds”: Cinematic Commerical Featuring Leonard Cohen Poem For Sony 3D Directed By Arev Manoukian (2011)

“3D World” Created by Sony cinema commercial.

Director: Arev Manoukian

Original poem, ‘That’s What I Heard You Say’, written and read by Leonard Cohen.

Don’t matter if the road is long
Don’t matter if it’s steep
Don’t matter if the page is gone 
It’s written that we’ll meet. 
I loved you when you opened
like a lily to the heat
and I love you when it closes
a thousand kisses deep.

I know you had to lie to me 
I know you had to cheat 
You learned it on your father’s knee 
and at your mother’s feet.
But did you have to fight your way 
across the burning street 
where all our vital interests lay 
a thousand kisses deep…
