Movie Seen: ‘Army of Shadows’ Hits Laemmle’s Ahrya Fine Arts Theater

 

If you’re a movie buff, cinephile, and just anywhere near Los Angeles this weekend, I highly recommend checking out Army of Shadows. Directed by Jean-Pierre Melville (Le Cercle Rouge, Le Samourai), the WWII thriller set in Nazi-occupied France has an exclusive engagement starting today at the Ahrya Fine Arts Movie Theater in Beverly Hills.

The film, even with a 145 running time, moves at a brisk pace as we are witness to the dangerous and oftentimes bleak lives of French resistance fighters (including Lino Ventura and Simone Signoret). The 1969 feature wasn’t released in the U.S. until 2006 (kudos to Rialto Pictures), and the feature was honored that year as the Best Foreign Film by the New York Film Critics.

My full review is posted on Hollywood Outbreak. For more info on the film’s one week engagement, please go to Laemmle’s official site.

Here’s a few photos from the film:
