His first feature, which André Malraux acclaimed as the most beautiful film he had ever seen, brought Resnais instant fame and has become an enduring classic of film history. A complex study of a troubled relationship set in post World War II Japan. A young French actress is in Hiroshima for the shooting of a film about peace. She meets a Japanese architect who reminds her of a former lover, a German soldier. The haunting affair is overshadowed by memories of the Bomb.
