Mr. Klein an excellent movie starring the great French actor Alain Delon is now available on Blu-ray from Amazon. UK. The story takes place in Nazi occupied Paris where Mr. Klein leads a life of luxury until a Jewish newspaper brings him to the attention of the Police. The Police have him confused with another person with the same name who is Jewish making the Police interested in him. The video is excellent with deep colors adding to the depth of the picture. The movie is in French with English subtitiles. The Blu-ray is Region Locked "B".

Losey's masterpiece IMO.

The new 4K, DCP and this 1080 transfer is very fine indeed and replaces an earlier but also good HD transfer from an older HD master which was only released by IVC in Japan as far as I can tell. The color tonality is comparable in both and is not - I have to insist not a consequence of the now horribly predictable cyan biased LUT infected color grading botch jobs from post house Lab Eclair. The post work here was done by Hiventy who are now doing more and more work for Canal back catalogue and their color grading is exemplary. This is no different. The Euro Canal disc includes English subs. Unless Kino-Lorber can pick this up there's no scheduled US release. Don't hesitate. Losey was never better, Delon was never better, DP Gerry Fisher was never better.

Criterion is supposed to be releasing this in December, according to the Studiocanal press release for the film.

Many thanks to Ernest and David Hare. I am a fan of Alain Delon but not of Joseph Losey so I've been undecided about buying this disc. My mind is now made up!
