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

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

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.

EmanuelLevy.Com

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.
