"Lupin (Omar Sy, NETFLIX, 2020)"


  

          

Dope cat and mouse thriller set in France. The first part is five episodes and is on Netflix now.

Not the usual fare for me, but I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I’m loving it.
The cast is great, especially the lead actor.

There were lots of times where he really resembled Idris Elba as Stringer Bell. I know
I’m not the only one who saw that.. lol

Can’t wait for the 2nd part to come out.

The writing and directing is really great..this is my first time seeing Omar Sy in anything and I'm hearing he's a huge star in France

I watched in French w/English subtitles so I may watch again to see more of the acting subtleties since I had to read so much...

The dog, yo...I loved him so much! what a hilarious device to have to bark every time anyone said Pelligrini (although they missed 1 or 2...i was watching lol)

I was glad they had Assane off his game a couple times...no thief is perfect and he can't control every situation..the walls are closing in on him at this point, so it was a perfect mid-season cliffhanger

they do such a great job at creating tension and suspense! several times i realized i was on the edge of the couch, leaning in to the tv screen..at one point, i paused to run to the bathroom, and i found myself actually RUNNING down the hall as if the shit was gonna magically unpause while i was away LOL

great job at keeping the audience off balance around whether or not his father was guilty...several times i was like, ok he stole it..then nah he didn't lol

i knew the journalist wasn't gonna make it....i really loved her character and was glad she got to briefly get back in the action

seeing a French Black actor w/this kinda role and budget...just wow...i know Omar must be living the dream right now...

oh and the casting!!! the boy cast as young Assane...perfect. wow


i can't wait for part 2
