Does the night never end in Hiroshima? …
Hailed as a landmark of modernist cinema, Hiroshima mon amour startled the film world with a new kind of cinematic language that blurred memory and time in a way accomplished earlier only in literature. Set in the city of its title, the film tells of the brief love affair of a French actress and a Japanese architect, both haunted by what happened in Hiiroshima during and after World War II. Released in 1959, it remains a work of striking originality, defined by unforgettable visual imagery, poetic voice-over and revelatory editing.
“Exquisitely beautiful and harrowing meditation on war and love”–. Times UK
