Melville, la vie et la mort et la resistance parmi les deux. Le fausse froideur de Ventura, le fausse douceur de Signoret, makes the only love affair in the film. The other one is with the absolut, the number one, the chief Paul Meurisse, the 'cause'.
View all Army of Shadows reviews
Director Jean-Pierre Melville's experiences as a member of the French Resistance during World War II inform this movie about a civil engineer who becomes one of the chiefs of the underground movement. Hailed by many as a masterpiece for its dark and uncompromising vision, the film (which is based on a Joseph Kessel novel of the same name) co-stars Lino Ventura, Simone Signoret, Paul Meurisse and Jean-Pierre Cassel.

"A terrible moment: The Resistance "réseau" is forced to eliminate one of their active members (Mathilde - Simone Signoret) because her daughter is in the hands of the Gestapo who threaten to send her"

"Jean-Pierre Cassel, excellent actor, unlike his son (Vincent Cassel), who does not reach him “at the ankle”. A real actor is someone who "has boards", that is to say, has done theater or has taken"
