Film Screening - Army of Shadows 

When: Sun., June 25, 7 p.m. 2017
www.bampfa.org/event/army-shadows-3
This drama of the French Resistance is Joseph Kessel’s novel translated through director Jean-Pierre Melville’s personal recollections of the period, and of course his extraordinary cinema technique. Lino Ventura stars as a member of a Resistance unit in the early years of the war, when nobility and recklessness were called for in equal measure. He wears a suit in prison, but sangfroid masks purity of mission: he’ll give you his last cigarette or execute you, depending. In a marvelous cast, Simone Signoret stands out as a master of disguises—bomb-maker, whore, old woman, collaborationist nurse, and, fatally, mother.
