Lupine on netflix: and in the united states, what do we think of the series with omar sy?

Created by George Kay and co-directed by Louis Leterrier and Marcela Said, “Lupine” features Omar Sy in a modern reinterpretation of the character of Maurice Leblanc. Great success in France, what about the press on the other side of the Atlantic?

What is it about ?

25 years ago, the life of young Assane Diop is turned upside down when his father dies after being accused of a crime he did not commit. Today, Assane will be inspired by his hero, Arsène Lupine – Gentleman Burglar, to avenge him …

What does the US press think?

Rolling Stone : Creator George Kay, co-writer François Uzan, and directors Louis Leterrier and Marcela Said do an impressive job of keeping a light tone while exploring Assane’s vengeance. (…) The series works mainly thanks to Omar Sy, who is so magnetic and charismatic that the coherence of the story becomes secondary. While he never looks different when in disguise, Omar Sy changes his posture and voice enough for viewers to believe, the same way Christopher Reeve did for Clark Kent.

The Atlantic:The true strength of Lupine is not to stop at the game of gendarmes and thieves. The series is more about an orphan against high society built on dirty money (…) Assane, whose victims are the same rich men and women who robbed his childhood, is not only a worthy heir to Lupine. It is also a fair and modern reinterpretation of the figure of a French hero.

Los Angeles Times : “Lupine is a train you might like to take if you want to get away from it all for a while. A trip to Paris filled with beautiful scenery, beautiful people, with action and emotion and just enough depth – the series engages a social discourse on racism – to make you feel like there is something solid behind the melodrama. (…) The interpretations and the production are the strong points of the series, even if the plot is 100% predictable.
