Hiroshima Mon Amour

"Blahbety, blahbety, blah, mon amour."№¢

I'm supposed to recommend this movie because of its cultural significance and the effect it had on post-WWII France etc, etc, but I really don't give a damn and to tell the truth it's a little too much tortured philisophical French New Wave for one film. The poor Japanese lead was chosen only for his build, it seems. His poor handling of the French language is horribly apparent as he apes his lines in the bedroom to his beautiful and infuriatingly French co-star.

Favorite Moments: Opening scene, facts about the bombing of Hiroshima.
