Summary Note One of the most influential films of all time, Alain Resnais' first feature is a beautifully realised parable of love and war set in bomb-ravaged Japan. Following Night and Fog, his devastating chronicle of the Nazi concentration camps, Resnais was asked to make a film about the atomic bomb, and responded with this moody masterwork, a love story in which a French actress (Emmanuelle Riva) and Japanese architect (Eiji Okada) exorcise their memories of war during a torrid affair amid the ruins of Hiroshima. Utilizing an innovative flashback structure and Academy Award-nominated screenplay by novelist Marguerite Duras, Resnais delicately weaves past and present, personal pain and public anguish, in a film that defined the French New Wave.
