Hiroshima Mon Amour

“The first film to juxtapose disastrous erotic passion with the political disasters of the mid century”

Michael Atkinson, Village Voice

Type:Drama, Romance

Dur:90 min


Dir:Alain Resnais



The deep conversation between a Japanese architect (Eiji Okada) and a French actress (Emmanuelle Riva) forms the basis of this celebrated French film, considered one of the vanguard productions of the French New Wave. Set in Hiroshima after the end of World War II, the couple — lovers turned friends — recount, over many hours, previous romances and life experiences. The two intertwine their stories about the past with pondering the devastation wrought by the atomic bomb dropped on the city.
