Critic Reviews for Mr. Klein

All Critics (3)

  • Great acting by Delon, a great premise and great atmosphere, make this nearly a great film.

    Oct 18, 2008 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…
  • Those doubting the acting chops of handsomer Delon should have a look at Joseph Losey's existential and moral Holocaust drama, in which the Gallic star gives his most complex and challenging performance.

    Dec 17, 2007 | Rating: A- | Full Review…
  • Este pesadelo kafkaniano (com toques noir) traz Delon como um personagem complexo que transforma a busca por um judeu (seu homônimo) em uma obsessão - ao mesmo tempo em que relembramos os crimes do governo francês na época da ocupação nazista.

Audience Reviews for Mr. Klein

What is in a name? This question has profound implications during an anti-Semitic regime. The surname is a precursor to identity: Klein implies French Catholicism or Dutch Jewish ancestry. Seeking to correct a simple case of mistaken identity becomes a Kafkaesque journey. Exploration of the doppelganger is rarely more personal. A well-scripted, riveting intellectual thriller.
