Following in the footsteps of her mother (Monique Bonnot, who was a legendary editor in her own right), Françoise Bonnot became one of the world’s most versatile and seasoned film editors with a career that spanned over five decades. In Army of Shadows, directed by Jean-Pierre Melville, Bonnot’s incisive editing gives tension to this atmospheric masterpiece. A bleak portrait of the struggles of French Resistance during World War II, the film shrewdly captures the trauma of occupation, as we follow a loose network of underground fighters and their invisible yet life-threatening work.
