Miami Beach Cinematheque. August 15th, 2010. 8:00 p.m.
The French film Hiroshima Mon Amour directed by Alain Resnais and written by Marguerite Duras will be screened at the Miami Beach Cinematheque on August 15th, 2010 at 8:00 p.m.
A cornerstone film of the French New Wave, Alain Resnais’ first feature is one of the most influential films of all time. A French actress (Emmanuelle Riva) and a Japanese architect (Eiji Okada) engage in a brief, intense affair in postwar Hiroshima, their consuming fascination impelling them to exorcise their own scarred memories of love and suffering. Utilizing an innovative flashback structure and an Academy Award nominated screenplay by novelist Marguerite Duras, Resnais delicately weaves past and present, personal pain and public anguish, in this moody masterwork. (In French and Japanese with English subtitles.)
