Filmmaker Resnais and screenwriter Margeurite Duras created one of the most experimental and original films of the New Wave films in which a nameless French actress and a married Japanese man carrying on an extended conversation during a brief love affair while she shoots a film in Hiroshima. The film is a complex and compelling plea for peace and the abolition of atomic warfare, as well as a beautiful evocation of love lost and momentarily found.
