If you don’t recognize the title, it’s a movie about Lupin the Third. Lupin the Third is a notorious international thief.


In the beginning of the movie, he is breaking into a casino. He manages to steal the money, but after driving away in a car completely filled to the brim, he realizing that the money is fake. So, because of this he goes to the only place he know where they make the exact brand of counterfeits: Cagliostro. After he comes to town, he saves a runaway bride’s life until he hurts himself. She ends up back with the guy that she is running from. When Lupin comes to, he is determined to save Lady Clarisse. But will he? You’ll have to watch to find out.

If you’ve never watched the series or anything else goes with this movie, you’d be pretty lost, but still enjoy and even if you were a fan of the Lupin the Third series, you’d love it all the more. It’s more of a shounen movie.

If you live in the Colorado Springs area, you can find this at you local PPLD branch. Happy Watching!
