Storyline

Paris, 1942. Robert Klein cannot find any fault with the state of affairs in German-occupied France. He has a well-furnished flat, a mistress, and business is booming. Jews facing discrimination because of laws edicted by the French government are desperate to sell valuable works of art - and it is easy for him to get them at bargain prices. His cosy life is disrupted when he realizes that there is another Robert Klein in Paris - a Jew with a rather mysterious behaviour. Very soon, this homonymy attracts the close - and menacing - attention of the police on the established art trader. Written by Eduardo Casais <eduardo.casais@research.nokia.com>

A magnetic masterpiece with a mysterious role.
10 March 2003 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

Mr. Klein is a magnetic masterpiece,it has the characteristics of a Film Noir although it's not a detective movie.It deals in a subtile way but irritating with one of the main traumas in the human Era suffered in the 20th century - The Holocaust. The plot seems to be ordinary and straight forward but in the background we have many clues that what seems to be is not what there is. Joseph Losey made here a genious work of directing,creating a mysterious movie with even more mysterious double character of Mr. Klein - one in the shade and one very well performed by Alain Delon.
