Hiroshima Mon Amour/ Night & Fog

Two gems from Alain Resnais' past...

Hiroshima Mon Amour review

Long before Alain Resnais made forgettable fancies like Wild Grass, he made these searching meditations on memory and representation.

Documentary Night And Fog contrasts harrowing footage of Nazi concentration camps with colour footage shot 10 years later in a measured plea to remember how human atrocities took root in banal reality.

A peak of cinematic modernism, Hiroshima pivots on an affair between a French woman and a Japanese man in the bomb’s shadow.
