This influential French New Wave film uses a disintegrating love affair to explore memory in post-World War II Japan. The film revolves around a deep conversation between a Japanese architect (Eiji Okada) and a French actress (Emmanuelle Riva). Set in Hiroshima after the end of World War II, the couple – lovers turned friends – recount, over many hours, previous romances and life experiences. The two intertwine their stories about the past with pondering the devastation wrought by the atomic bomb dropped on the city.
