The Army of Crime

French World War II drama chronicling the famous 1944 'Red Poster' case, in which a group of foreign partisans defied French apathy to form their own resistance against the Nazi occupation. Exiled Armenian poet Missak Manouchian (Simon Abkarian) is living in occupied Paris with his wife Melinee (Virginie Ledoyen). Though a pacifist at heart, Manouchian joins the underground resistance in desperation, along with a group of young hothead emigres from around the world. Initially the Germans rely on the French police to quell the insurgents, but after the murder of a high-ranking general they step up the pressure on Manouchian and his fellow partisans, who are portrayed in Nazi propaganda as 'the army of crime'.
