Army of Shadows

A gorgeous film about a group of French resistance fighters by Jean-Pierre Melville.
A film where you have Simone Signoret, Lino Ventura (Giants!) and Jean-Pierre Cassel is magnificent soul candy already. And then Melville displays such understated panache, such melancholy, such wisdom that the movie, even though it felt a bit long to me, is both extremely thrilling and moving. They just don't make 'em like that anymore. Gorgeous.
