i hit the culture wall!


o.k., so i've finally watched the legendary film "hiroshima mon amour", directed by alain resnais, screenplay by marguerite duras (the movie "the lover" was based on her book), 1959.
i don't know if i've become so completely blo@$bus%^erized (eeemposeeebul!) or i'm just too young (whoohoo!) but i didn't get the legendary-iness. and i found myself fidgeting. or was the experience supposed to make me uncomfortable? i'm lost.
my favourite thing was the 2003 interview with the actress who potrayed the female lead, emmanuelle riva (wow. what elegance, what youth, what serenity).
anyone of you seen it? wanna explain it to me?
k.
ps. yes, i do get the part about war, peace, love, memory etc.

Ha ha ha. If it doesn't involve Bollywood, Jane Austen, Sly, George Lucas, or predictable love story I probably haven't seen it. Sorry I'm not smart enough for your cinema (but I enjoy being just smart enough for mine!!).

Isn't the point of some of those movies so you DON'T get "it"?
