Hiroshima

Drama, War 1h 44m 1953

A powerful and expectedly harrowing Japanese portrait of life before and after the atomic bombing of Hiroshima that follows both a school dropout who copes with his trauma by gambling, and the reunification of two children with their father.

”[Along with Children of Hiroshima] these long under-seen landmarks of Japanese cinema are essential viewing for those seeking to grapple with nuclear horror not as an abstract issue but as a possible reality.” ~Kazu Watanabe, Criterion Collection
