This movie is pretty remarkable. About covert French rebels during Nazi-occupied France, The Army of Shadows is slow-burning and intimate to a brilliant level. Lino Venture is phenomenal as the high ranking rebel Philippe Gerbier as he possess this calmness while still maintaining a rather severe demeanor.

The Army of Shadows is a story worth seeing that has characters worth knowing.
