Arsène Lupin (2004, FRA/ITA/SPA/GBR) C-131m. SCOPE ** D: Jean-Paul Salomé. Starring Romain Duris, Kristin Scott Thomas, Pascal Greggory, Eva Green, Robin Renucci, Patrick Toomey. Mathieu Carrière. Adaptation of several of author Maurice Leblanc's Arsène Lupin stories about a French master thief, who investigates the murder of his father in 19th century France. Well-produced and visually appealing, but not storywise; its main character leaves us cold. From the director of BELPHEGOR - LE FANTOME DU LOUVRE (2001).
