Omar Sy... solidly embodies this Frenchman. [Full review in Spanish]

Omar Sy, however, is too charming to pass unnoticed-it helps that you want to be fooled...

It's a magnificent concoction and, with an uncanny timing, it is captivating in a way that connects to the time we live in.

The character might have a heavy lineage, but he wears it lightly.
January 14, 2021
Lupin is a thrilling roller coaster ride of clever heists, mystery, and intrigue. Its twists and turns are savvy and engaging, with the plot zigging when you assume it will be zagging.

Star Omar Sy (Intouchables) channels all his 190cm frame and dancer's athleticism into an almost uncanny ýoung Idris Elba-style performance as a jewel thief, single dad and utterly unreadable con-man in this so-far terrific series.

Addictive and clever, Lupin has you on the edge of your seat without gratuitous violence or nudity. Season 2 can't come soon enough.

Lupin's twists and turns, and a fine performance from Omar Sy makes the show eminently watchable.

It is Sy's Bond-ian elegance and understated charisma that keeps you keyed in.

The series also doesn't waste a single minute, packing each and every moment full of suspense. Put all of that together, and it's an early front-runner to steal a spot as one of the best shows of the year.

Slick, clever, and fun, Lupin provides the perfect amount of intrigue to carry you from episode to episode.

A propulsive and cleverly made piece of work about one great heist and its ongoing aftermath.

One of the great strengths of Netflix's Lupin is how it entices the viewer down one path, to then strip it away and surprise with an entirely new outlook.

Lupin is an addictive, clever puzzle that combines elements from Luther, Sherlock Holmes, and Inside Man for an engrossing experience.

Lupin is the most James Bond-like experience you can get on TV with cool capers and a beyond cool guy. This show is great to binge on Netflix.
