Hiroshima Mon Amour -- The story of a French actress and a Japanese architect engage in a brief, intense affair in postwar Hiroshima. This meaningful love affair weaves complex images and flashbacks as they share their differing perspectives on war. She has suffered during the war in occupied France, while he has survived the city's bombing--and their pasts deeply affect their present.  English Subtitles
Hiroshima Mon Amour -- The new restoration of Alain Resnais' HIROSHIMA MON AMOUR opens October 17 at the Film Society of Lincoln Center in New York City and Laemmle Theatres in Los Angeles! Written by Marguerite Duras, HIROSHIMA MON AMOUR depicts a brief affair between a French actress (Emmanuelle Riva) and a Japanese architect (Eiji Okada) in the rebuilt and thriving Hiroshima of 1959. The couple's bliss is slowly eroded by the unavoidable memories of the war and atomic mass destruction.
