A formerly-intimate couple splits up amidst heavy discussions and acrimony in Hiroshima mon amour. Diving into frank discussions about the after- effects of the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima in World War II, this couple, a Japanese architect known as “Him” and a French woman known as “Her,” explore the depths of their relationship over a meal. Part of the Left Bank French filmmaking wave (as opposed to the more decadent Cahiers du Cinéma movement), this film by Alain Resnais is an early adopter of non-linear storytelling. Presented by the UT Department of Theatre and Film as part of their Fridays on Film series. Popcorn and drinks will be available.
