Starring Lino Ventura and Simone Signoret, Army of Shadows is Melville's grim account of the experiences of a small band of French Resistance fighters as they try to evade capture and the fate that awaits them if caught. Jean-Pierre Grumbach changed his surname to Melville while in the French Resistance as a nod to American novelist Herman Melville. (145 mins., 35mm)
