French Film Festival: Mr. Klein

Sun, Mar 10 / 2:30 pm
Directed by Joseph Losey
1976, France, 123 min
French with English subtitles

Robert Klein (Alain Delon) cannot find any fault with the state of affairs in German-occupied France. He has a well-furnished flat, a mistress, and business is booming. Jews facing discrimination because of laws carried forth by the French government are desperate to sell valuable works of art – and it is easy for him to get them at bargain prices. His comfortable situation is disrupted when he discovers that there is another Robert Klein living in Paris. Also starring Jeanne Moreau.


Alliance Française du Manitoba is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to teaching and promoting French and its diverse culture. For the 5th time, the Alliance Française’s French Film Festival, curated by Damien Ferland and Alan Nobili, will give Winnipeggers the opportunity to see a diverse selection of French feature-length movies.

Reviews

Joseph Losey's Mr. Klein may be one of the very best films the director made in the later part of his career. This thriller is packed with terrific performances, most notably from Alain Delon, and a number of other virtues: beautiful 70s color photography, tight pacing, and fascinating content, all in a very Kafkaesque  tradition that blurs the boundaries of trust, safety, and identity.
