Le Cercle Franais, Pi Delta Phi & the Department of Modern Languages at FIU Invite you to join us in watching HIROSHIMA MON AMOUR HIROSHIMA MON AMOUR is a 1959 film directed by French film director Alain Resnais, with a screenplay by the incomparable Marguerite Duras. Emmanuelle Riva and Eiji Okada are the stars in this impossible love story which is the documentation of an intensely personal conversation about memory and forgetfulness between a French actress filming an anti-war film in Hiroshima and a Japanese architect. The film was a major catalyst for the Nouvelle Vague. Recognitions include an Oscar nomination for screenwriter Marguerite Duras, the Fipresci International Critics' Prize at the 1959 Cannes Film Festival, the Grand Prix of the Belgian Film Critics Association in 1960. It was recently shown as part of the Cannes Classics section of the 2013 Cannes Film Festival.
