Hiroshima mon amour concerns a series of conversations over a 36-hour long period between a French actress (Emmanuelle Riva), referred to as Her, and a Japanese architect (Eiji Okada), referred to as Him. They have had a brief relationship and are now separating. The two debate memory and forgetfulness as She prepares to depart, comparing failed relationships with the bombing of Hiroshima and the perspectives of people inside and outside the incidents.

The relationship to the world that characterizes our time in our culture is marked by uncertainty and plurality, which have gradually collapsed manyof the landmarks that once stabilized our identities.
