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

Robert Klein (Alain Delon) is an unscrupulous art dealer in occupied France, who buys paintings at knocked down prices from desperate jews looking for some quick cash to aid their escape, this is a golden opportunity for Klein to live the high life at their expense. Klein is disturbed when he receives a Jewish newspaper at his home. A chance error by a Jewish newspaper sees Klein in trouble with the authorities as they believe he is a jew, Klein has to hurry to prove he is French and that its all a big mistake and that there is another Mr Klein. What follows is a delightful Kafkaesue play on identity and mis-identity, that becomes ever more labyrinthine and confusing, but always spellbinding.
