L'Armee Des Ombres review

Jean-Pierre Melville's sombre account of the French Resistance avoids spectacular heroism and instead presents a twilight world where the clandestine resisters seek to avoid capture - and are forced to eliminate informants from their own ranks. The movingly restrained performances perfectly complement the compelling mood of pessimism and futility.
