Hiroshima mon amour
Ostensibly the story of a love affair between a Japanese architect and a French actress visiting Japan to make a film on peace, Hiroshima Mon Amour is a stunning exploration of the influence of war on both Japanese and French culture and the conflict between love and humanity.

Two brilliant screenplays that emphasise the starkness of the individual and the importance of love. Hiroshima mon Amour uses the backdrop of Hiroshima brilliantly to tell a story of the difficulty of carrying on in a post-war world. Terrific writing.
