Highly enjoyable!
7 October 2001 | by (Paris, Fr) – See all my reviews

Some aspects of Maurice Leblanc's writings are difficult to be brought to screen. Arsène Lupin is far from a mono dimensional character. Fortunately that TV series cashes in on the buoyancy of Arsène Lupin, a gentleman and a professional thief. Georges Descrières hence embodies perfectly a lovable dandy with a sweet tooth for art masterpieces (be they paintings or jewels) and a great sense of honor (especially women's honor). When Lupin disguises himself it's like watching Artemus Gordon in Wild Wild West: you wait for him and you enjoy the performance. Thus you keep a good picture of an hero whose adventures you followed avidly after you had switched from Jules Vernes's transient exoticism.
