Part of Rialto Pictures: 20 Films for 20 Years

Museum of the Moving Image - Redstone Theater

Dir. Jean-Pierre Melville. 1969, 145 mins. DCP. With Lino Ventura, Simone Signoret. Philippe (Ventura), aided by Resistance compatriots including maitresse of disguise Mathilde (Signoret), goes underground in the face of the German Occupation; but the price of heroism can be truly horrific. Jean-Pierre Melville’s decidedly unsentimental view of the Resistance was controversial in its time. Not released in the U.S. until Rialto premiered it in 2006, it was the most critically-acclaimed film of that year and included on the Top 10 lists of many major publications. It won the New York Film Critics Circle Award for Best Foreign Language Film, 37 years after it was made.
