Most spies in film get to have tailored suits and sexy action scenes. In Jean-Pierre Melville’s masterpiece, every spy is exhausted, drained and always living in dread. This is the tale of members of the French Resistance during WWII who keep trying to accomplish anything they can no matter the personal cost. The result is mesmerizing and horrifying.
