Jean-Pierre Melville: Army of Shadows (L’armee des ombres)

Fri, Feb 1 / 7 pm
Sun, Feb 3 / 7 pm
Directed by Jean-Pierre Melville
1969, France, 145 min
French with English subtitles

This masterpiece went unreleased in the United States for thirty-seven years. Philippe (Lino Ventura), aided by his Resistance compatriots, including maitresse of disguise Mathilde (Simone Signoret), goes underground in the face of the German Occupation – but the price of heroism can be truly horrific.


The Jean-Pierre Melville Retrospective is presented in partnership with the Alliance Française du Manitoba, Institut Français, Cultural Services of the French Embassy in Canada, and the Jean-Pierre Melville Foundation.

            

Reviews

Excruciatingly tense and never less than heartbreakingly human. And as much as I admire Spielberg's film "Munich" Shadows leaves Spielberg's film  in the dust in the moral-ambiguity department....it's already on my year's ten-best list for April 2006.
