Based on the early 20th century French detective novels by Maurice Leblanc; Lupin is a new seven part Netflix series about Assane Diop (Omar Sy), whose life was turned upside down as a teenager, when his father died after being accused of a crime he didn’t commit.
Twenty five years pass and Assane decides to use ‘Arsène Lupin, Gentleman Burglar’ as his inspiration to avenge his father.
I’m interested in what looks like a clever vengeance story. It’s just unfortunate that this dub job leaves much to be desired. For reasons including the voiceover guy being 1) American and 2) sounding nothing like Sy.
I generally don’t watch many dubbed movies. So I wonder, are dub jobs usually this disappointing? Hopefully Netflix will let us watch it in the language it was filmed, but with subtitles.
Additional key cast includes Ludivine Sagnier, Clotilde Hesme, Nicole Garcia, Nicolas Wanczycki, Karim Lasmi, Pierre Rousselet and Cédric Meusburger.
