“Breathtaking...the most meaningful atmosphere of exquisite suspense you’re likely to see at the movies this year. Or most years.” — Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly

Himself a veteran of the French Resistance, Melville transposed the suspense and fatalism of his classic crime films (LE DOULOS, LE SAMOURAÏ) to the more personal and demanding subject of espionage in occupied France. With exacting precision and relentless tension, ARMY OF SHADOWS follows a small cell of Resistance fighters through a gray, cold world filled with betrayal and death. In French with English subtitles. DCP digital restoration. (MR)
