Army Of Shadows (Criterion Collection) (1969)
The constant struggles--against both the Germans occupying their homeland and their own inner conflicts--of a band of WWII French resistance fighters are compellingly portrayed in this acclaimed drama from director Jean-Pierre Melville (himself a former resistance member). Unseen in America until its 2006 theatrical release, the gripping tale stars Lino Ventura, Simone Signoret, Paul Meurisse, and Jean-Pierre Cassel. 145 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtracks: French Dolby Digital mono, Dolby Digital stereo; Subtitles: English; audio commentary; documentaries; interviews; theatrical trailer. In French with English subtitles. Two-disc set.
