Zavvi - The Home of Pop Culture

A cornerstone of the French New Wave, the first feature from ALAIN RESNAIS (Last Year at Marienbad) is one of the most influential films of all time. A French actress (Amour's EMMANUELLE RIVA) and a Japanese architect (Woman in the Dunes' 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 (India Song), Hiroshima mon amour is a moody masterwork that delicately weaves past and present, personal pain and public anguish.
