Emmanuelle Riva, César, Lumière, and BAFTA Best Actress winner and Oscar nominee for Michael Haneke's Best Foreign Language Film winner Amour died at the age of 89 on Friday, January 27, 2017 in Paris.

Riva's performance with Eiji Okada in Alain Renais' Hiroshima Mon Amour in 1959 cuts so sharply to the truth about love and war that even after many viewings it is difficult to fully grasp the film's historical significance, storytelling innovations and stylistic brilliance.

It was more than half a century since Riva’s soothing cadenced voice and delicate features had dominated Alain Resnais’ masterful Hiroshima Mon Amour (1959).

In that film, the voice of Riva as Elle is first heard over horrific newsreel images of the victims of the atom bomb, and it is almost 10 minutes into the film before we see her in the arms of her Japanese lover (Eiji Okada), called simply Lui. She is a French actor in Hiroshima, he is an architect. The repeated phrases of their dialogue echo throughout the film written by Marguerite Duras. He says: “You saw nothing in Hiroshima. »
