It’s no secret that Netflix has been absolutely smashing it with some of its recent releases, including Bridgerton and The Queen’s Gambit. Among these hits is the French crime thriller, Lupin!
Lupin premiered earlier this month and received incredible reviews as a contemporary reimagining of the Arsene Lupin series of novels by Maurice Leblanc.
Just finished Lupin on Netflix. It’s tight and clever – a mix of drama, mystery and comedy that defies pigeonholing. It’s also beautifully shot and structured. Omar Sy’s performance is mesmerising. A great watch at 5 Eps, bring on Season 2 @LupinNetflix @OmarSy 😊

It follows Assane Diop, played by Omar Sy, whose life turns upside down after his father’s death, who died for a crime he didn’t commit. 25 years on, Assane turns a criminal mastermind and gets his muse from a book about gentleman thief Arsene Lupin for revenge.
