Two photographs with titles tipped on the recto, one crediting director Alain Resnais.

Resnais' meditation on memory, history, and forgetfulness proved to be a major catalyst for the Rive Gauche movement, earning Resnais a Palme d'Or nomination and screenwriter Marguerite Duras an Academy Award nomination.

Set in Hiroshima, shot on location in Hiroshima, Japan and Nievre, France.
