Hiroshima, Mon Amour

Resnais’ seminal first feature was written by Marguerite Duras and co-shot by the great Sacha Vierny. In 1959 a married French actress shooting in Hiroshima spends the night with a Japanese man she meets in a bar. Their pillow talk reveals pasts badly scarred by war. A poetic meditation on memory, loss, and love.
