Synopsis
Several films by the great French director Alain Resnais graphically evoke the horrors of war: Night and Frog, Hiroshima, Mon Amour, and Guernica. Using Picasso's agonized evocation of the destruction of the village of Guernica by German bombers in the Spanish Civil War, together with other more hopeful paintings and drawings by the same artist, and with the aid of a poetic commentary by Paul Eluard, Resnais employed the montage techniques he had gradually been mastering to create a passionate protest against war that is also an exhilarating affirmation of faith and humanity and the possibility of love.
