A new restoration of one of the classics of cinema, Hiroshima Mon Amour depicts a brief affair between a French actress (Emmanuelle Riva) and a Japanese architect (Eiji Okada) in the rebuilt and thriving Hiroshima of 1959. The couple's bliss is slowly eroded by the unavoidable memories of the war and atomic mass destruction. From Director Alain Resnais



Presented in French and Japanese with English subtitles
Emmanuelle Riva (1927—2017) epitomized a new kind of female star, more realistic and intellectual, as opposed to the "sex kitten" stereotype of Bardot. After her star-making turn in Hiroshima Mon Amour, Riva appeared opposite Jean-Paul Belmondo in Melville's Léon Morin, Priest. In 2012, Riva starred in Michael Haneke's Amour, with Jean-Louis Trintignant, a role for which Riva received a multitude of awards, including an Oscar nomination for Best Actress in a Leading Role, and César and BAFTA Awards for Best Actress. In Alain Resnais' groundbreaking work of the New Wave, Riva portrays a French actress researching a role in post-war Hiroshima. She enters into an affair with a Japanese architext (Eiji Okada) while experiencing flashbacks of a doomed wartime tryst with a German soldier.
