  • Hiroshima Mon Amour

    Hiroshima Mon Amour

    ★★★★★

    A cinematic display of virtuosity like no other. Outstanding in each way imagineable. The sincerest Look at Memory, with the Human constant of forgetting interlinked with the everlooming Threat of the Atomic bomb.

    Powerful Acting, a revolution in Editing and screenwriting, a marvel to look at and listen, intellectually stimulating, relentlessly cinematic, „Hiroshima, mon amour“ May very weil be one of the pinnacles in the Olympus of film.

    ★★

    I'm so tired of these movies, they don't actually feel like movies anymore, rather they act as a constant reminder that the industry is becoming more and more Money-oriented than ever.
    The clearest sign that "Star Wars" is headed in the same direction as the Marvel Cinematic Universe so far.
