Simply the best!
3 December 2005 | by See all my reviews

The precedent user is completely right;in spite of a low budget (since it's a made -for-TV production,Astruc ,who was a good director in the fifties (when he made two very worthwhile works:"le Rideau Cramoisi" and "Une Vie" ),made perhaps the best Maurice Leblanc adaptation that ever was -with the notable exception of "l'Ile aux Trente Cercueils" but some fans were cross cause Lupin was not in the series-.Whereas such a talented director as Jacques Becker failed,Astruc pulled it off masterfully.Why?Because he followed Leblanc's novel (whose title is "813" ,"Lupin Joue et Perd" being the second part of the novel) with accuracy;because Jean-Claude Brialy was the best Arsène Lupin:anyone who has read Leblanc's books knows it ;because a TV series was a better way to transfer the novel to the screen than a movie.
