Hiroshima (1953 film)

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki


Hiroshima is a 1953 black and white Japanese film dramatizing the events of August 6, 1945, when the city was destroyed by an atomic bomb at the conclusion of World War II. The film was directed by Hideo Sekigawa.

Turner Classic Movies aired the film, along with the 1952 Japanese film Children of Hiroshima, on July 12, 2020, with commentary by host Ben Mankiewicz.

Plot[edit]

The film portrays the horror of the bombing and its aftermath through the experiences of survivors. In framing sequences set some years later, the film depicts the lingering illnesses caused by radiation, and the insensitivity shown by some to the suffering of the victims. The anti-war message is made explicit when a character quotes Charlie Chaplin's 1947 film Monsieur Verdoux: "One murder makes a villain; millions, a hero."
