    "Good Luck to you, M-I-S-T-E-R Klein." If anyone has seen Alain Delon's Le Samourai,please do check this in a favor of him.Another underrated French Cinema,don't miss it.

    The topic of identity is very difficult to explore. Obsession is another tough challenge to adapt. Merge them together and add Delon's most complex performance. A thorough character study with undertones of social critique ensues, arguably Losey's definitive triumph in cinema. 93/100

    A prospering doctor in German-occupied Paris in 1942 is mistaken for a Jewish man with the same name. I may have to watch this again to fully appreciate. Plodded at times as he searched fruitlessly for his namesake but has a good ironic ending.

    Director Joseph Losey is an acquired taste. He's made great films (Trotsky) and some real boring ones as well. He likes being enigmatic, sometimes to the point of tedium. This is a near great film and Alien Delon nails his Kafkaesque character to the cross....Find it and watch it, but don't get mad at me if you hate it.

    After I got past the off-putting dubbing into English, the film's central mystery really grabbed me. Alain Delon is an unscrupulous art dealer in France during WWII (preying on fleeing Jews by buying their treasures at low prices) who becomes mistaken for another "Robert Klein" who may be Jewish. As his world crumbles with the enforcement of anti-Semitic laws, he searches (detective-like) for his doppelganger. Losey's direction (and art direction) heightens the ambiguity of Delon's situation and moves him into a world of blues and greys where alienation reigns.

    Les papiers ou retrouver son homonyme ? Sauver sa peau ou savoir qui est l'autre ? Le flash back vocal des dernières secondes du film semble indiquer que l'à (C)goïsme peut conduire à une fin funeste, que le lucre peut dà (C)tourner des vraies valeurs.
