Synopsis:
Paris, January 1942 - art dealer Robert Klein (Alain Delon) is making a killing. For this loyal Frenchman the Nazi occupation is a unique business opportunity. He stands to profit from the Jewish people's misfortune, as they sell their possessions in a hurry to leave the country. But when a Jewish newspaper turns up on Klein's doorstep, his comfortable life begins to unravel. It seems there is another Robert Klein, a suspected Jewish Resistance fighter, who is content to live in the shadows and let his namesake take the fall.
As Klein's investigation of his double progresses, the mood shifts from Hitchcock to Kafka and proving his innocence becomes less important than confronting his doppelgänger...

Losey quality - Mr. Klein review by PS

Spoiler Alert
18/05/2018

This was a very interesting film and as good as any by Joseph Losey. I think it's probably one of the best roles I've seen Alain Delon in and it deals with a very serious, often unexplored topic, the level of collaboration in France under German occupation. Beautifully filmed and well paced and I think there should be a special mention for its setting in old Paris and the gorgeous 1930s costumes. Like many Losey films, I feel I could watch this many times.

Haunting - Mr. Klein review by MR

Spoiler Alert
25/03/2019

I agree with the above, the film has haunted me for days. There is perhaps an artificial feel about the use of old Paris settings, but the topic is very interesting and ultimately tragic; pretty special acting too by everyone involved.
