"MR. KLEIN IS A POLITICAL MOVIE IN THE PRESENT TENSE."
— Richard Brody, The New Yorker
“A SLOW-BURNING FRENCH THRILLER…
Suffused not only with history, but also with echoes of Kafka, Dostoyevsky and the clipped paranoia of Losey’s collaborations with Harold Pinter.”
— New York Times
"Mr. Klein remains as strong and thought-provoking a film today as it was
over 40 years ago."
— Mitchell Abidor, Jewish Currents
