Presented in a complex network of flashbacks this profoundly moving drama explores the shadow of history over the personal lives of a lonely French actress (Riva), who's working in Hiroshima, and the Japanese architect (Okada) with whom she's having an affair. She has suffered during the war in occupied France, while he has survived the city's bombing--and their pasts deeply affect their present. Resnais' first feature film and highly influential; adapted by Marguerite Duras from her book. Japanese with subtitles.
