This was the first film directed by Hayao Miyazaki. Initially, the film was going to be directed by Yasuo Ôtsuka, and would be an adaptation of Lupin the 3rd (1977) (as part of a common trend at the time of adapting TV animes into films); in fact a draft of the script was handled by the series writer Seijun Suzuki, and contained an amalgamation of elements from the series. however, Otsuka didn't like the draft, and asked Miyaki to handle it. Miyazaki changed the direction of the script completely by asking for an original plot. See more »

We got five billion in various denominations! It's a shower of bills, look out!
[a pile falls on Lupin]
There's a lot of them, isn't there? More! Bury me with them!
[Jigen buries Lupin with the bills as ordered, but sees Lupin look downcast]
What's wrong, Lupin?
These are fakes. Good ones, but fakes.
These? It can't be! We stole these from the vault of the national casino!

I've heard of it prior to seeing it but never really expected the movie to be an awesome experience. One of the greatest anime of all time.
Great use of colors. Great flow of storytelling. The landscape is really spellbinding.
Not surprising since it is produced by Ghibli Studio, directed and written by Hayao Miyazaki. This man is the mastermind behind great anime movie such as Totoro:the neighbour, Kiki delivery Service, Laputa the floating castle. That man is a genius with storytelling and spellbinding anime direction.
The movie starts of in cliché style of action movie. As it progress, you are brought along to experience the world of Lupin adventure.
Its really hard to find fault in a movie that delivers such great feeling. Euphoric!
