The great Miyazaki's first film from 1979 is based on a manga, which in turn is based on the French novel "Lupin," about a gentleman thief. This is quiet a bit different in tone and content than many of his better known films. It's more a traditional comic adventure film with more violence and swearing than his fantasy-based films. Aside from that, it's very entertaining, with some great chase sequences and typically gorgeous animation. The finale on a clock tower has some similarities to "Back to the Future," made a few years later.

Very interesting and funny. It's cute despite the bad instances of language. I'd watch it again if I could get a language dubber.

Meet Lupin, dangerous and wanted thief. After stealing billions of dollars with his sidekick Jigin from a casino, the sneaky bandits discover that the cash they've just stolen is fake. In other words, they've stolen a bunch of funny money. But this funny money looks frighteningly real. As Lupin investigates, he realizes that to stop a major counterfeiting operation, he must defeat an evil Count who lusts for a hidden family treasure...the secrets of which only the girl he's forcing to be his bride can unlock. Join Lupin as he saves his friends and finds love along the way. (Please read my notice on this movie).

Coarse Language: Many different instances of bad language that really spoiled the dialogue for this film. the story is cute and very creative, but, even though the description may seem like a robin hood film, this is not for children under 12. Language consists of several cuss words (son of a b-tch, taking the name of Jesus in vain, d-mn, I think d-ng, possibly even sh-t).
