In Melville’s most personal film, Philippe (Lino Ventura), aided by Resistance compatriots—including maîtresse of disguise, Mathilde (Simone Signoret)—goes underground in the face of the German Occupation, but the price of heroism can be truly horrific. Now considered a masterpiece, the film was voted as Best Foreign Film by the New York Film Critics Circle upon its re-release in 2006. In French with English subtitles. (2K DCP Presentation)
