The Army of Crime
Available on Prime Video, STUDIOCANAL Presents, ITVX
Their personal motives are steeped in tragedy. Their objective is to fight tyranny in the name of freedom. Their methods are deadly and explosive. This is the factual, untold story of the FTP-MOI, one of the most notorious and feared sects of the French resistance during WWII. A tense, uncompromising and starkly realistic portrayal of how a disparate group of outsiders, from varying nationalities, joined forces to create an unstoppable, militant, underground army. This is also the story of Missak Manouchian, an Armenian poet and self-proclaimed pacifist who is suddenly thrown into a world where violence, death and conflict are the only means of survival. Directed by accomplished filmmaker Robert Guediguian (The Last Mitterand, This Town Is Quiet), Army Of Crime is a myth destroying, poignant, compelling and highly original piece of modern cinema. A gripping, shockingly realistic depiction of wartime Europe, Army Of Crime successfully binds human drama, historical fact and incredibly tense action sequences into a thrilling, unforgettable experience.
