The Army of Crime: the French battle the Germans

Back in 1995, when The Simpsons was funny, Groundskeeper Willie called the French ‘Cheese-eating surrender monkeys’. Based on real events, The Army of Crime shows the inhabitants of France to be the opposite. This group of underground terrorists are from all over Europe but based in France and are single-minded in their determination to kill Germans.

There’s the chain-smoking swimming champion who goes around shooting officers, there’s grenades tossed onto trucks full of soldiers, and the odd colonel shot in the head. In an effort to accurately portray real events, both the violence and subsequent torture of captured members of the resistance is honest and brutal. Perhaps most interesting is the embedded reminder that terrorism is all a matter of perspective, as these terrorists are lauded for taking out Germans, while every modern day terrorist is condemned.
