Great Shot of the Week

Hiroshima mon amour (1959)

Dir. Alain Resnais

The passage of time does not make wounds of tragedy any less, as it continues to shape a society aching to rebuild, as well as the lover affairs that dwell within it.  The love affair, as an ode to humanity during turmoil, as well as the weight of weakness that continues to pervade.  Resnais’ ruminations on the passing of time and the malleability of memory haunt to this day, and coupled with the masterful Last Year at Marienbad, provided cinema with a new voice that arguably still hasn’t been given a proper rebuttal.
