As the Allies march toward Paris in the summer of 1944, Hitler gives orders that the French capital should not fall into enemy hands, or if it does, then only ‘as a field of rubble’.
Ben, aged 30, is about to marry Juliette. But his quiet little life will be turned on its head when he runs into the person whom he secretly wanted to see more than anyone: Vanessa, the high-school sex bomb who never gave him a second glance. She’s back in Paris now, and he’s the only person she knows...
HIROSHIMA MON AMOUR is the late Alain Resnais' seminal debut film. A pillar of the French New Wave, long unavailable for exhibition in the United States due to rights issues (it has even been left out of touring Resnais retrospectives in recent years), HIROSHIMA will be released nationally by Rialto Pictures in a spectacular new restoration.
eventsIn France, the phrase “Post-May” speaks of the long, even endless shadow cast by the extraordinary events of May and June 1968, when a dispute at a single college campus outside of Paris led to a wildcat general strike that brought France to a standstill and, depending on who was conducting the post-mortem, almost dissolved the country into anarchy or raised the specter of a new way of a life, a new definition of freedom that inspired and tormented people all over the globe
