5.0 out of 5 stars Moving tribute to a courageous resistance group 14 Oct 2013
Wonderfully scripted and acted film, with a charismatic Simon Abkarian playing the lead role of Armenian poet Missak Manouchian. The film is based on the true story of the formation and actions of the Manouchian group, one of the main resistance groups in Paris in WW2. The film's name comes from the 'Affiche Rouge', red poster - the nazi propaganda attempt to discredit the group, by describing them as 'l'armée du crime'. Spaniards do not feature highly in the film as there was only 1 in this actual group. The majority were Poles, Italians, Jews and Hungarians. There is violence, and some of it awful, but it's not gratuitous. The poet Manouchian's struggle with his pacifism, ethics and humanism is very moving.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Just French Resistance 10 July 2012
By Pedro
Army of Crime is a an efficient well acted and directed look at some aspects of the reality of the resistance against the Nazi Occupation of France. I wanted to see it because I have an interest in the fate of the Spanish Republicans who fled into France many of which fought in the Resistance. Unfortunately the Spanish characters are marginal in the film, most of the central characters being Jews from the Balkans, but what I did find most revealing was the degree of collaboration of the French police with the Germans and the mixed emotions of those involved. It wasn't just clear cut 'Goodies' and 'Baddies'.
All in all an interesting and exciting film, if no masterpiece.

Pedro
