Hiroshima mon amour
She is a French actress visiting Hiroshima to make a film; he is her married lover, a former Japanese soldier whose family was killed the day the U.S. dropped an atomic bomb on the city. While the two reflect on the horrors of wartime they begin to debate the very unreliability of memory.
