“THIS STORY OF BLURRED IDENTITIES AND CASUAL MORALITY IN GERMAN-OCCUPIED PARIS BENEFITS FROM WHAT MIGHT BE THE BEST PERFORMANCE OF ALAIN DELON’S LONG CAREER.” – LOS ANGELES TIMES

In Nazi-occupied Paris, an art dealer discovers his identity is being confused with another Mr Klein…and this one is Jewish. As he tries to prove who he is and as he searches for his doppelgänger, he begins to realize there is nothing accidental about this confusion.

Behind the mystery at the heart of Mr Klein is the realization that the collaboration between the Nazis and the French in occupied France wasn’t just the unfortunate choices of misguided individuals, but the result of a systematic corruption within the French government.

A masterpiece of identity crisis – a mesmeric cat-and-mouse played out in dreadful, ever-lengthening shadows.”
