Hiroshima mon amour = Hiroshima, my love by Alain Resnais( Visual )

12 editions published between 1959 and 2015 in French and held by 1,081 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the filming of an anti-war film in Japan, a French actress falls in love with a Japanese architect. Their relationship leads to the sharing of wartime experiences from opposite sides of the world. The love affair inspires the return of a flood of memories for the French actress who remembers the killing of a German soldier with whom she was in love during the war. She recalls the humiliation of being paraded through the streets of her town as a prostitute for fraternizing with the enemy. Director Resnais' film broke many cinematic conventions by interweaving the protagonists memories of their experiences during the war with their adult lives and combining music and dramatic voice over in new ways. Because Resnais felt it was unecessary to honor the traditional sense of narrative and time, some critics were not certain during the viewing of the film whether they're watching the events of 1959 or of 1945. Nevertheless, the film was an international success, earning an Oscar nomination for screenwriter Marguerite Duras
