“Mr. Klein…is a cool, elegantly dressed movie…It’s the story of the dandyish Robert Klein (Alain Delon), a successful upper-class entrepreneur whose life in the Nazi-occupied Paris of 1942 is probably not much different than it was before the war, except that he doesn’t hesitate to deal in objets d’art being sold by Jewish refugees desperate for cash. Klein’s settled existence (a handsome house, high-toned friends, a sexy mistress he more or less confines to bed) is suddenly broken one morning when he finds at his door a copy of the local Jewish newspaper addressed to him… The Roman Catholic, Alsatian-born Klein has nothing against Jews– he sympathizes with his Jewish clients– but it could be terribly inconvenient if the authorities came to believe that he himself was Jewish.…” (Vincent Canby, The New York Times)
