Director Nobuhiro Suwa

A postmodern adaptation of Alain Renais' classic Hiroshima, Mon Amour. Nobuhiro Suwa plays himself as a director who is seeking to remake the 1959 masterwork and who has cast French actress Beatrice Dalle as the lead in the role originally played by Emmanuelle Riva. Using Suwa's trademark John Cassavetes-like directing style, we see Suwa, his interpreter, Dalle and writer Kou Machida interact in a manner that seems entirely improvised.
