The story of a French actress (Emmanuelle Riva) and a Japanese architect (Eiji Okada) 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. Director Alain Resnais' first feature film and highly influential French masterpiece. English Subtitles.
