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.

Audience Reviews for Arsene Lupin

Nice rendition of a french literary classic. Nicer than Holmes imho. The mood and costumes were executed brilliantly. The choice of Scott Thomas as the femme fatale countess was questionable, though her acting and french are undeniably excellent.

Not bad for a French treasure-hunting thriller. Romain Duris is refined enough for Arsene Lupin. Kristen Scott Thomas is mysteriously charming & even Eva Green is much better off than what she had done in all her English spoken movies. Pascal Greggory is of course good, as ever.
