The first feature film by Alain Resnais (1922–2014), Hiroshima mon amour is a masterpiece that chronicles a brief relationship in post-World War II Japan between a French actress, played by Emmanuelle Riva (Oscar nominee for the 2012 film Amour), and a Japanese architect, played by Eiji Okada (Woman in the Dunes).

Considered one of the most beautiful and influential movies ever made, Hiroshima mon amour is based on a screenplay by influential writer Marguerite Duras. This engagement is presented in a sparkling black and white digital restoration.
