Internationally famous thief, Arsene Lupin the Third, receives half of the large diamond known as Twilight from old crimeboss Doruune. Doruune tells him that if he finds the other half of the diamond in Morocco, they will lead him to treasure. Lupin and his gang (Daisuke Jigen, Goemon Ishikawa, and Fujiko Mine) head to Morocco, but get caught up in the middle of a conflict between the government and Gelt rebels. Both sides want Lupin, but no one wants him more than his 'old friend' Interpol Inspector Kouichi Zenigata, who has pursued him to Morocco... Written by Thanos6

Did You Know?


This movie by and far features the most fan service of any Lupin movie, with several scenes featuring Fujiko Mine topless, and a scene of a nude Lara bathing. Also, it's notable for being the only film with a Lupin/Fujiko sex scene that doesn't get interrupted on-camera. FUNimation created an edited version of the film because of these concerns, although the full uncut version was also made available. When FUNimation later re-released Twilight Gemini as part of the "First Haul" box set, they accidentally issued it with the edited version. An uncut copy replacement was made available to those who had purchased the edited version, and the mistake was corrected in later releases. See more »

Very, very dull

This really doesn't match up to Castle of Cagliostro. Lupin isn't as funny or wacky or as hyperactive. The scenery and music are uninspired and plot just isn't interesting.

The only good thing about this 'un is the nudity (only in the uncut version) provided by Fujiko. It helped spice up some of the tedious scenes. CoC had a formidable villain and set up the movie for some imaginative set-pieces. The locations in TSoTG are not very vivid or engaging.

Zenigata, Goemon and Jigen don't even provide decent sideshow entertainment this time. It's like they were just filling a contractual obligation by appearing.

The DVD is in full-frame with Dolby Stereo sound. It has a decent amount of extras, including quite a few trailers. But one curious thing. There is no chapter selection on the disc or timecode displayed on the player once inserted. Though you can still skip to the next scene number using the remote.
