|Review Summary and Plot Commentary about Hiroshima Mon Amour|
|Almost fifteen years after the end of World War II, a French actress comes to Hiroshima to star in a film. She has a brief love affair with a Japanese man, and her experience triggers disturbing memories of an affair she had with a German soldier during the war. The film is moody, dark, and pensive, concentrating on memory, regret, and obsession.
