Hiroshima Mon Amour (English Subtitles) (warning: Graphic images)



Hiroshima mon amour is an acclaimed 1959 drama film directed by French film director Alain Resnais, with a screenplay by Marguerite Duras. It is the documentation of an intensely personal conversation between a French-Japanese couple about memory and forgetfulness. It was a major catalyst for the Nouvelle Vague (French New Wave), making highly innovative use of miniature flashbacks to create a uniquely nonlinear storyline.
The title literally translates from French to English as 'Hiroshima, My Love', though the film is almost always referred to by its original French title.

Cast:
--------
Emmanuelle Riva as Elle
Eiji Okada as Lui
Bernard Fresson as L'Allemand
Stella Dassas as La Mère
Pierre Barbaud as Le Père

2. At 14:25-14:29, there is a glimpse of the old City Hall building

Severely damaged by the atomic bomb, it has been left standing to serve as a reminder of the morning of August 6, 1945.

By the way, a co-worker of mine, who was just a baby at the time, was living just a mile or so from that building when the bomb was dropped. He survived of course, as did his brother, but his sister, who was playing outside, was not so lucky.
