About this movie

A cornerstone of the French New Wave, the first feature from Alain Resnais is one of the most influential films of all time. A French actress (Emmanuelle Riva) and a Japanese architect (Eiji Okada) engage in a brief, intense affair in postwar Hiroshima, their consuming mutual fascination impelling them to exorcise their own scarred memories of love and suffering. With an innovative flashback structure and an Academy Award–nominated screenplay by novelist Marguerite Duras, Hiroshima mon amour is a moody masterwork that delicately weaves past and present, personal pain and public anguish.

Beautiful, Moving, Sad, Touching, Human. I can see why this film is considered a top rank in the French New Wave genre. The tortures of War for two lovers are still felt long after the final bomb has dropped or the final bullet has fired. "Hiroshima, My Love", you've left your mark on me! French audio, English sub-titles.
