Hiroshima Mon Amour Reviews
My God, it might just be the greatest love story ever told. What an intense, orgasmic cinematic experience. Forgotten memories are the most haunting aspect of our psyche. Love and pain intertwine so much. No other movie merges the two quite better than this one. Forget about all the political implications. It's marvelous from beginning to end.
I guess one of the theme of this movie is " Atomic Bomb and Hiroshima".At the begging of the movie, Man and women were talking about Hiroshima's devastation after A-bomb, having sex. Why they had to speak about Atomic Bomb during sex?Anyway, we will learn devastation of Hiroshima.
- French woman
This women was from France. She wanted to make some film about A-bomb and Hiroshima. She loved with a Japanese. It was a strange love.She never smiled.She was sad,mad and depressed. Her boy friend was a Nazi and killed. It seemed that she was tortured after the war.she needed to overcome her tragedy.I hope Hiroshima's recovery gave her some hope.
- Japanese man
This person lost his family by A-bomb.I still don't understand why he was able to speak French.This actor was Mr.Eiji Okada. He was one of the legend in Japanese movie industry 1950's. He took her to a Japanese restaurant. They couldn't enjoy cheerful and nice conversation.When they were dating, they were talking about her past relationships with the Nazi offices. But he is still chasing her.Okada's performance was expressive although I can't judge his French skills.
- 1950's Hiroshima. I personally enjoyed Hiroshima in the 1950's. After A-bomb, many people believed that this city was dead.But Hiroshima recovered from A-bomb.People were ver cheerful.They enjoy dating, socializing and eating&drinking. I liked one scene. When the French women was sitting alone. One Japanese man spoke English to her and asking her to go out! Whenever japanese saw caucasians or white people, they instantly believe that the whites are Americans. What a bold guy he was!
- Personally, I put three stars.This was not my favorite.Too much melancholic and sad stories. But many critics believe that this was one of the great movie in New Wave movement of French movie industry. if you have plenty of time, please find it on the internet.
