Army of Crime

Thursday, March 18, 2010

Part of “Rendez-Vous with French Cinema 2010.”

A taut, revealing thriller about the French Resistance, whose leaders and foot soldiers were often foreigners—Poles, Jews, Armenians, Spaniards, Italians—who had to fear French collaborators as well as the Germans. Armenian poet Missak Manouchian (a stand-out performance by Simon Abkarian) and his French wife Mélinée (Virginie Ledoyen) lead a ragtag assortment of volunteers in an assassination plot against the German occupiers and their French allies.
