While it remains today to be one of the first examples of the beginning of the French New Wave, I like to think of it in a completely different light, because this time it isn't as excited about being modern as it is simply to be innovative, and tell a story that appears heartbreaking, but remains mysterious the more you think about it. This is an excellent film that is truly one of the best films of the 1950s. The story is hard to explain. Even though it revolves around the affair between a French actress (Emmanuelle Riva) and a Japanese architect (Eiji Okada), already taboo enough for the time period, it isn't the focal point of the film. In fact, it remains a background all the while intriguing us. The actress, who remains nameless, is married to a man for money yet seems emotionally unstable in a way that's hard to tell at first, and she doesn't want the affair to last; the architect, who stays without a name as well, is happily married but apparently is seeing the actress just because he can. While they both should be rotten human beings in our minds, we can help but be fascinated by them. The actress is in the town of Hiroshima to film a movie revolving around the 1945 bombing of the city, and while at first it just seems to be the reason why she's there, it becomes the core of the film, even a bigger oddity. What's even more shocking, is while the Japanese were suffering during the bombing, she was in pain as well but for different reasons. "Hiroshima Mon Amour" begins as though it could be one of those sexy foreign dramas that could stir audiences with a blink of an eye, but slowly but surely it becomes a little bit more bleak, but the pacing that Alain Resnais sets it flawless. He makes every second of the film feel claustrophobic and melancholy, while it stays subtly romantic. There's still room for artistic style however, and Resnais proves this by adding in a voiceover that reminds one of Jean-Luc Godard, and using lighting that's reminiscent of film noir. What I'll always take away from the film though, is Riva's compelling performance. While she may have not been nominated for an Oscar until recently for "Amour", "Hiroshima Mon Amour" delivers her talents to full effect, to the point in which it makes the film better than it has any right to be. Most femmes in these kinds of films look pretty but don't have much range (hem hem, Anna Karina), but Riva is emotional and embodies the role. Her character goes through so much, and even though it isn't apparent at first, you can tell there's something behind her cool as ice faade. She's fantastic. "Hiroshima Mon Amour" on the outside just seems like another experiment, but it truly is much more fascinating than I expected. This is filmmaking at its finest, and it's wonderful to think this is one of the films that caused modern day filmmaking. Recommended.
