More than seven decades over..the tragedy happened in Japanese cities Hiroshima and Nagasaki..during II World War. While paying homage...
I remembered great docu-film with this backdrop..
Great French Filmmaker Alain Resnais with camera!

'Hiroshima Mon Amour' (1959) made by filmmaker Alain of the pioneers of French New Wave! This film used miniature flashbacks to create a non-linear storyline..Marguerite Donnadieu wrote the screenplay of it! Michio Takahashi & Sacha Vierny cinematographed this film edited by Henri Colpi & Anne Sarraute!
Horrible realism in 'Hiroshima Mon Amour' (1959) by Alain Resnais!

In this, while making an anti-war film in Hiroshima a French Actress does conversation with her Japanese architect lover and they share their perspectives on war! Pretty French actress Emmanuelle Riva and Japanese actor Eiji Okada did these roles intensely in it!

Japanese actor Eiji Okada & French actress Emmanuelle 
Riva in French film 'Hiroshima Mon Amour' (1959).
This film was excluded from that time 'Cannes' official selection, because of it's sensitive subject & to avoid upsetting U.S.! But after many years it was shown as part of the classic section at '66th Cannes Film Festival' in 2013. This is very important landmark film in the history of world cinema which gives the strong message against war!

Now world leaders, 
please take care..there will be no more war!

We want peaceful & happy world!!
