With special appearance by Jeanne Moreau
Following its blockbuster two-week run at Film Forum, with virtually every show sold out, Joseph Losey’s rediscovered masterpiece Mr. Klein, starring Alain Delon, returns for a limited engagement, beginning Friday, October 4.
(1976) “This has nothing to do with me.” 1942, and in Occupied Paris, Alain Delon’s Catholic Klein seems to be sitting pretty. An attractive mistress, an apartment crammed full of expensive paintings, sculpture, tapestries – and mirrors – most of which he’s bought at fire sale prices from Jews eager to emigrate/flee. But then he finds a Jewish newspaper delivered to his doorstep, and the protests and desperate search for his Aryan heritage begins, so desperate that his attempts to establish his identity start to come second to a frenzied search for his doppelganger, a search that comes to an unforeseen, but perhaps inevitable end.
