Scripted by novelist Marguerite Duras, themes of war and memory penetrate through this Academy Award-nominated tale of a French actress’ affair with a Japanese architect as she films an antiwar film in Hiroshima.

Our take

With a screenplay written by no less than Marguerite Duras, Alain Resnais’ 1959 landmark is a painfully intimate mosaic of memories, and one of the most beautiful films ever made.
