Each person could find what he or she needs in a movie: humor, adrenaline rush, drama, love, a journey back through time, or an alternative reality. However, enjoying a good film in the evening and watching it solely based on either of these could trigger a good feeling.
Lupin was recommended to me after a hard day’s work and for weeks, I felt reluctant to watch it. It took a little persuasive speech😄 to finally watch it. To think that I almost drew a wrong conclusion of it before watching it.
Lupin is a French Tv series with subtitles in English language. An interesting and intriguing drama directed by Louis Leterrier. As said earlier, upon several persuasions and coaxing, I finally got to watch and shamed myself for belittling this masterpiece! 😂
The modern thief, Assane Diop, In the series, models his life just as Maurice Leblanc’s iconic character,Arsène Lupin in “the gentleman burglar,” (a novel written sometime ago).

It get better and more interesting when is double crossed his frustration boils up gradually in the movie. Lupin season 1&2 with various episodes is full of vibes and articulate, pulling the audience through many twists and turns and suddenly bringing it to a laudable ending.
