In director Alain Resnais's poetic adaptation of Margueurite Duras's acclaimed book, a French actress (Emmanuelle Riva) working in Japan meets a Japanese architect (Eiji Okada) with whom she has an affair. Their relationship consists largely of conversations about the bombing at Hiroshima, the horrors that he and his family endured and her perception of the cataclysm back home in occupied France.
