90 min | Drama, Romance | France, Japan
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. 
 
A worldwide art house sensation when first released, and widely considered one of the most beautiful and influential movies ever made, HIROSHIMA MON AMOUR was awarded the International Critics' prize at the 1959 Cannes Film Festival. Due to its harrowing anti-nuclear stance, it was kept out of the main competition to avoid offending the U.S. HIROSHIMA returned to Cannes last year in this new restoration.
