Drama/ Romance A French actress (Riva) and a Japanese architect (Okada) fall in love in Hiroshima many years after the Second World War, after both have had to come to terms with their pasts. Highly original at the time, and ultimately a deeply satisfying art movie. If Hiroshima Mon Amour now seems a little dated, it may be because it was so inspirational to so many film-makers.
