Nothing really happens but still entertaining
9 October 2010 | by JvH48See all my reviews

Actually nothing happens in this movie. But I was never bored throughout the screening. Makes me wonder...

Main character Juan has his mind on music and music alone. He leaves the talking to others, and responds consistently with "Sure" when asked to do something. His behaviour is best illustrated with a scene in the beginning, wherein the other members of his band are very busy with packing instruments and moving equipment into their van, while Juan sits in the corner with his guitar and does nothing to assist.

Still amazing that he finishes some of the chores (but not all) that were put on a to-do list by his parents, and even more surprising that he finally appears at the planned performance that night, too late for the sound check but just in time for singing "Hiroshima" that gave the title to this film.

Rather than the usual subtitles this movie re-introduced the showing of translations like in the old days of the silent movies, appearing between shots and hence interrupting the flow. It looked like a novel idea at first, but that feeling lasted 15 minutes at most. It distracts too much, and it has no real purpose other than being different.
