Movie Info

A retelling of the glamorous life of Arsene Lupin, the celebrated jewel thief of belle epoque Europe. Tired of boring rural life at the family's luxurious castle in Normandy, Arsene's father instructs him to steal a particularly necklace once worn by Marie Antoinette. Once the necklace is passed off to his father, Arsene goes to sleep, only to wake the next morning to discover his father dead and the family cast out. Still on the run from the law as an adult, Arsene returns to his childhood home and, with a false name, takes a job as the Duke's martial arts teacher. One night, though, he spies on a gathering of Royalist plotters as they condemn to death the Countess of Cagliostro. Lupin saves her and thus begins their intertwining fates. Decades fly by and historical events whirl around them as their mutual dependency -- sometimes as lovers, sometimes as enemies -- deepens.

  • Dark, sexy, violent and consistently loopy, Arséne Lupin is a welcome alternative to generic comic book Hollywood action.

  • Indulge in this two hour fantasy of this rakish burglar in an exquisitely imagined Paris and Normandy and you will come away entertained, amused and delighted.
