COMPETITION: Win Army of Shadows (Vintage World Cinema) on Blu-ray

Army of Shadows

STDIOCANAL has announced the release of a brand-new 4K restoration of Jean-Pierre Melville’s WW2 set masterpiece, ARMY OF SHADOWS, that will be available to own on Blu-Ray, DVD and Digital from June 3. The release follows the film’s inclusion in this year’s ‘Cannes Classic’ strand at the Cannes Film Festival.

And to celebrate we have a great competition and 3 copies on Blu-ray to give away.

Based on a novel by Joseph Kessel and featuring a stella cast that includes Lino Ventura (Les Misérables, Lift to The Scaffold), Paul Meurisse (Les Diaboliques, The Eleven O’clock Woman), Jean-Pierre Cassel (The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie, The Three Musketeers) and Simone Signoret (Room at The Top, Les Diaboliques), ARMY OF SHADOWS is a real-life story channelled through the minimalism of Melville’s gangster films. The result is an unmissable tale of defiance in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds.
 “Betrayal. Loyalty. Collaboration. Resistance”

In 1942, French engineer and Resistant cell leader, Philippe Gerbier (Lino Ventura), is arrested and sent to a Nazi concentration camp. Managing to escape we follow Gerbier and his Resistance allies through operations, camaraderie and espionage, and witness the constant threat of capture, danger and the tough decisions that need to be taken to stay alive.
The new 4K restoration of ARMY OF SHADOWS comes complete with brand-new extras and is the newest addition to the ever-expanding Vintage World Cinema collection from STUDIOCANAL.
