Lupin, Arsène Lupin

review by
Mike Haberfelner

Looking for his son Raoul (Etan Simon), who has been kidnapped last episode by his arch nemesis Pellegrini's (Hervé Pierre) hitman Léonard (Adama Niane), Assane (Omar Sy) accepts the help of Guedira (Soufiane Guerrab), a policeman on his trail, and they manage to track down Léonard to a mansion. Assane tries desparately to find his son in the mansion, and walks into an ambush that almost costs him his life, unaware that Raoul is actually locked up in Léonard's car's trunk. And Léonard only lets him know when he sets the car on fire, and when Assane runs towards the car to save his son, he walks into the reinforcements Guedira has called and is arrested.

The last image of the episode though suggests Raoul has managed to save himself - but Assane doesn't know that yet ...


At its best, Lupin was a series where the lead (just like the literary character he's named after) manages to pull of impossible heists using his ingenuity and a certain amount of playfulness instead of pure force. That concept though eroded over the series, and with this episode has been completely given up in favour for a routine and frankly not all that interesting thriller plot that's almost annoyingly straightforward, only made worse from repeated unrelated flashbacks about how young Assane (Mamadou Haidara) stealing a violin for his girlfriend (and later wife) Claire (Ludmilla Makowski) which do nothing for the main story and seem nothing more than filler material. A bit of a shame really, as the series started out as something different but has become just more of the same.
