I have been watching so many shows lately and there are a ton I want to talk about haha. After debating which one I would talk about first, I just knew I had to go with Lupin. This is a French Netflix show that was released very recently. Let’s jump in!
Inspired by the adventures of Arsène Lupin, gentleman thief Assane Diop sets out to avenge his father for an injustice inflicted by a wealthy family.
Like I said, this is a French Netflix show. There are only 5 episodes in this first season but Netflix already confirmed there will be a second part. You probably have already heard of this show because this seems to be one of the biggest releases recently. And I have to say that is very well deserved!
Lupin follows Assane Diop and is inspired by the adventures of Arsène Lupin, gentleman thief. I have to say I had never heard of Arsène Lupin but apparently it’s a classic haha. Of course I added the book immediately and already found a free copy through iBooks. I would love to get a French copy, even better if it has a translation as well haha.
When I started this show, I did watch the trailer but other than that I didn’t know to much about it. And I would highly recommend watching it that way. It’s also the reason I won’t give too much details here because I think it takes away from the experience. I didn’t know where the story was taking us and was super surprised by the end of the first episode haha.
I think this show is brilliant and I’m already looking forward to the next part that will be released later this year. Omar Sy is an amazing actor and I really need to watch his previous movies. My mom and a friend of my brother actually watched his movie Demain Tout Commence and they both loved it. I think everyone has heard of Intouchable and he actually also played in Jurassic World and will be in Jurassic World: Dominion.
Without saying too much about the show, I would urge everyone to give it a try. I’m pretty sure you’ll be hooked by the end of the first episode and Lupin will take you on a wild ride!
