Army of Shadows

This lost masterpiece by Jean-Pierre Melville (Le Circle Rouge, Le Samouraï) went unreleased in the United States for 37 years. When it finally hit screens in 2006, it was praised as one of the best films of the year. The gripping and very personal story (Melville himself was a member of the Army of Shadows) follows a group of intrepid underground fighters battling against Hitler's occupation in 1942 France. This unconventional thriller strips away the glamor of American war films to present a dark, detailed look at honor and sacrifice during wartime. In French with English subtitles. 145 minutes
