Army of Shadows + intro

Cinema

Directed by Jean-Pierre Melville| 2016 | France, Italy | French with English subtitles | Starring Lino Ventura, Paul Meurisse, Jean-Pierre Cassel, Simone Signoret | 145mins | Certificate 12A

We celebrate Jean-Pierre Melville’s centenary with a screening of one of his greatest films, a French resistance thriller starring Lino Ventura and Simone Signoret.

This screening will be introduced by JW3 film programmer Alex Davidson.

In the winter of 1942 - 1943, as France exists under German occupation, an underground cell operates in the shadows. In the clandestine world of the Resistance, the freedom fighters work against their enemies under the constant risk of betrayal, ordinary men and women in an extraordinary situation.

Suffused throughout with a mood of foreboding, the suspense, heightened with directorial mastery, reaches its peak as the Resistance attempt to free a prisoner from the Gestapo headquarters, in one of director Jean-Pierre Melville's trademark set pieces of iconic action.
