Lupin Season One Review
Wow, I need season two now!
Lupin follows a man called Assane who has based his whole life of thievery and robbery around a book called The Adventures of Arsène Lupin, Gentleman Thief. But there is something deeper to this story, when he was just 14 his father was accused of stealing a priceless necklace from the family that he was working for, and sadly the guilt drove him to suicide and since then Assane has wanted to know what really happened.
Thus we see a crazy storyline of police corruption, weapons stealing, terrorism, and a man who is stuck in the middle of it just trying to find the truth. It was really interesting to watch and I didn’t expect it to go down the route that it did. It started off as any other heist TV show and then became something so much deeper and so much more and I really enjoyed it.
But with all good thrillers this show ended on a cliffhanger and I cannot wait for season 2 to come out. I was left with so many questions I need answering immediately like: what is going to happen with the Pellegrinis? Has Assane finally been caught? What’s going to happen to his son? And will he ever get justice for his father?
I cannot recommend this show enough! It’s only five episodes long at 45 minutes each so very easy to watch. It is in French but I believe 2021 is the year for foreign language films and TV shows as there is so much blood, sweat and love put into these sorts of things. I cannot recommend branching out beyond the British language enough, this series was utterly fantastic and hooked me from start to finish.
I do hope we don’t have to wait too long for season two because at the end I did audibly gasp and I never felt adrenaline like it.
What do you think of Lupin?
Until next time.
