Classics of French Cinema: L’Armée des Ombres

March 26, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Classics of French Cinemas: Selected Works of Jean-Pierre Melville
We welcome spring with a new French film series, focusing this time on the cinematic genius of Jean-Pierre Melville (1917-1973).  With a signature style informed by his experiences in the French Resistance and imbued with both passion and precision, he keeps us deep in thought and on the edge of our seats. There will be time for discussion after the film.
L’Armée des Ombres (Army of Shadows)
Atmospheric and gripping, Jean-Pierre Melville’s most personal film features Lino Ventura, Paul Meurisse, Jean-Pierre Cassel, and the incomparable Simone Signoret as intrepid underground fighters who must grapple with their conception of honor in their battle against Hitler’s regime.
(1969, 145 min.)
