Hiroshima mon amour / text by Marguerite Duras for the film by Alain Resnais ; translated from the French by Richard Seaver ; picture editor: Robert Hughes.
Hiroshima haunts this narrative through its absent presence, as a negative trace, a silhouette that leaves nothing of its object. The shadow on stone is a negative image, one left by the very blast of the atomic bomb itself, a photographic exposure. From the very beginning, it traces itself through images, and we also forget it through images.
In this sense Elle and Lui, seeing everything and seeing nothing, are one and the same thing, and cinema is in a sense this vision of amnesia.
To see everything as Elle does, cinematically, is thus in a sense to see nothing. Truth of Delusion Before the first scene of Hiroshima Mon Amour, there is another, one that never was, one before and under the skin of the two bodies intertwined.
They remain as abandoned. They are a ghostly inscription somewhere between emptiness and presence. They are erased but not lacking: they exist as traces. Hiroshima Mon Amour 47 27 -- and instead decided upon something more enigmatic: a vine, barbed wire, the branches of the Delta estuary, fractured concrete, cracked skin? It is an image taken by Resnais during his scouting in Hiroshima, one that indeed was an image of the trace: an after-image of the atomic mushroom, inscribed upon the city, the film, the skin.
Nevertheless, Duras wanted the first image of the atomic explosion An image of the trace. It was to evoke the paradoxical feeling of seeing for the first time and seeing again. It was thus to manifest a desire, a cinematic desire to witness, to experience, again, that which has never even been experienced in the first place. In other words, the image was to have reproduced the logic of the traumatic, to have split and vacillated between origin and repetition, which is to say presence and absence.
Hanold travels to Pompeii to find the ghost of Gradiva, Gradiva who is actually his childhood friend, Zoe Bertgang, with whom he used to play, the memory of whom he has repressed and replaced with this specter, Gradiva, whom he imagines lived and died in Pompeii over eighteen hundred years ago, in 79 AD. He chases after this Pompeian phantasy or specter, to find her flesh and blood, to re-unite her foot with her footprint, in effect to dispel her specter, to arrive at a Gradiva rediviva.
Yet, at the same time he desires to exorcise Hiroshima Mon Amour 48 the specter, deny its validity, as merely a partial truth, a distorted supplement for the whole repressed truth, which, once it is unearthed, effaces the archive, dispels the specter.
There is an irony, however, in that right here when the archeologist appears to have exorcised the phantom -- i. There is a simultaneous exorcism of ghosts and a new belief in ghosts. The delusion repeats itself. Drinking his blood, which is her blood, is her attempt to return to a corporeal experience of his death, to bring his death to life, not only in the flesh but deeper, in the blood.
Her desire is forked, paradoxical, mad, feverish, torn between seeing everything and seeing nothing. It is, as both a desire to see the image and a desire to pierce it and drink its blood, to bring it to life and to kill it, a simultaneous avowal and disavowal of the archive. The image that never was of Bikini Atoll, itself archived, consists of this double vision, this avowal and disavowal. Ten thousand degrees at Peace Square. I know it. The temperature of the sun at Peace Square.
How can you not know it? She wants to understand Hiroshima viscerally, to feel its heat on her skin, to touch its skin. In the last scene of the film we see again this coexistence of desire to touch, and the vacillation between sensation and image. A gourmand of Hiroshima, she rolls it around in her mouth, touches it against her lips, like the marble that enters her cold cellar in Nevers that she tries to put into her mouth.
She tries to give Hiroshima a body that can be caressed, that can be held in her arms -- but it slips away. Perhaps it is slipping away into the visual register, for she also needs to see it: it has to become something she can see with her eyes. Hiroshima becomes the man.
Desire as such is always cleft, heterogenous, conflicted. Thus, its filmic nature is recognized from the very beginning. To raise the ghost of Hiroshima from the ashes. A perfect hallucination: Hiroshima rediviva. The screen contains an allure of proximity, a desire to witness, to touch even, the event itself in its unmediated presence or synthesis, but is always already as is the structure of desire itself, as lack at the same time a distance and separation.
How to see Hiroshima -- the lost Hiroshima, the unimaginable Hiroshima? I began this paper by asking to what the title Hiroshima Mon Amour refers to, and the more fundamental question: what does the signifier Hiroshima refer to? Hence the double vision, the desire to touch subsumed within the visual order rendering the skin untouchable.
Hiroshima is narrative, a story in which Hiroshima, the thing itself, evaporates. This is the transcendental condition for all stories: not remembering, but forgetting.
Which raises another question: Where is Hiroshima? Never present, whether lost or to come, we chase it throughout the film, the text, grasping at its shadow, its trace.
We are transported to the limit of representation or presentation, to its own internal externality, what remains without remaining, what remains abandoned. And this is the truth of truth itself, the internal otherness of truth. Elle wanders through Hiroshima, to reunite with the lost lover, the lost Hiroshima, perhaps the memory of her German lover, even.
Hiroshima never joins in the walk one takes through the imprint it leaves behind. Camera Lucida: Reflections on Photography. Richard Howard. New York: Hill and Wang, Buck-Morss, Susan.

Alain Robbe-Grillet's answers are at all times illuminating and provided further understanding of his own perspectives on his writing and film. It is best read in conjunction with the talk that it follows also available on this academia.
It is also well followed with by reading the 'Open Discussion' between all participants at the conference equally available on academia. Discourses on memory and forgetting, individual and collective memory will also frame a filmic analysis where Paul Ricoeur is given particular theoretical attention. In a film partly dealing with the traumas of the atomic bomb and its aftermath, Resnais visually and narratively juxtaposes wartime Hiroshima and the city twelve years after the event: The paper highlights the fluid relationship between the protagonists and their environment, as well as the semi-documentary aspects of a film that establishes an effective dialogue between past and present.
