Hiroshima/Nagasaki Day Haiku

memorial day --
Hiroshima mon amour

Published on World Kigo Database (Hiroshima/Nagasaki Day)


Hiroshima mon amour (English: Hiroshima, My Love) is Alain Resnais’ first feature film, unanimously viewed as the cornerstone film of the Nouvelle Vague (French New Wave). His innovative use of miniature flashbacks successfully creates a nonlinear plot line that weaves past and present, personal pain and public anguish.
