Great because it is a film about Leonard Cohen. Great poet, songwriter, and performer. The film matches with Dylan's Don't Look Back and is a must for lovers of music documentary.

4.0 out of 5 stars For lovers of books about places and people., 28 May 2014
Barbara Unković’s book, ‘A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing’ is like a breath of fresh air. Too many English, cross the channel to France, move into a house, attempt to chat to the locals, (whom they think love them) and write a book about their experiences. They believe this will become the next bestseller.
Ms Unković, is from a very different background. A second generation Croat, Ms Unković was born in New Zealand. Fascinated by her family background and eager to learn more she decided to move back to Croatia with her New Zealand born husband. This book does not make up an adventure, it is a real adventure. Ms Unković tells of the enjoyment and hardship of fitting into a small village and community. Ultimately finding that it doesn’t suit, because of poor relationships with some of the villagers and Croatian Bureaucracy which is beyond her control she moves on to start a new life in France. The lesson we learn from Ms Unković’s writing, is that we have no roots. Just because, say, we are of Croatian origin, that doesn’t mean that we will fit into that society. The people that Ms Unković and her husband meet whom they grow to like come from all sorts of backgrounds and nationalities.
For me, and it is probably because it suits my particular interest, the book really took off when the Serb/Croat conflict was described. I believe that Ms Unković should write a non-fiction book about this.
As an added bonus bonus, this book is well illustrated with photographs and there are excellent recipes.
For lovers of books about places and people then this book is a must buy.
I found it an amusing book with lots of local colour.

Lightnin' Hopkins is a great blues player. He has many many cds out, too many to choose from and you could buy a poor one. This one is great though.
