Lupin [Netflix]

    Released with little fanfare outside of France (where the Lupin series would be on a par with Sherlock Holmes), and while I've only caught the first episode is a really slick, breezy adventure. Will definitely keep watching the other 4 episodes (apparently there's more to come later this year)

    Its weirdly hard to find a French-with-subtitles trailer, all have been English dubbed, thus a bit crappy.

    I like it. It's a bit ridiculous but very watchable and Paris looks fantastic as usual. The lead is tres charmant.

    Loved it very intriguing. Has to be watched in French with subtitles for full effect


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,060 ✭✭✭ whomitconcerns


    Very annoying it ends at episode 5 right in the middle of the story

    Ordinarily I'd let people enjoy things how they prefer, but to me, nothing ruins immersion faster and more deeply than dubbing. Jarring to the eyes and ears, it also robs the original cast of their performances, especially if a good performance is replaced with a terrible dub.

    For some reason they split the season and the second half is coming later this year during the summer.

    I don't know how anyone can watch these things dubbed. Just 'orrible

    Hi
    I’m watching Netflix on Apple TV box, how can I change to French audio with English subtitles.

    Sorted.... Settings in Apple TV app as opposed to Netflix app

    I won’t even consider watching anything dubbed. Give me subtitles any day. Dubbing is the work of the devil.

    But remember dubbing can be worse. In Poland still and a lot of former Soviet countries they have dubbing done by one person for all roles in the same program.

    In Poland called a lector. Now that's something to deal with... Male, female, action, love scenes, etc, all in the same voice.

    Loved this, very slick and looking forward to the end of the season.

    I always watch the subtitled version but having said that, it's difficult to distinguish a good performance from a bad one if you don't speak the language.

    I speak a little French so I'm perhaps in an advantage, but while I may not understand what's said, I feel the projection and way the actor says it. Especially European languages that kinda swim in the same linguistic pool. Like with Dark, the performances felt good, even if I didn't understand the words spoken.

    On episode 4 now. Fairly predictable, and breezes along, with the backstories unfolding slowly, but interestingly. Nothing that hasn't already been done before, with everything falling into place perfectly for the wily main character with his capers, but the backstories help with adding some good drama. The lead is charming, and full of panache. All in all, a nice easy entertaining watch.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 8,492 ✭✭✭ Sir Oxman


    The lead is very good.


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,357 ✭✭✭✭ Hello 2D Person Below


    Enjoyable first five episodes.

    Looking forward to the rest.


  • Moderators, Entertainment Moderators Posts: 27,161 Mod ✭✭✭✭ pixelburp


    Finished this up yesterday and loved it. Breezy, charming fun. Nothing groundbreaking but a great adventure. The cast have great chemistry and little things like an otherwise affable separated family unit made the domestic plotting more digestible, believable. (instead of ploughing the cliché antagonisms between exes).

    My only quibble was episode 4 contained a really bad bit of Idiot Ball that had me shouting at the screen. Make a damn copy.my wife

    Coincidentally, a Trailer for the second part came out; Netflix US is dubbed again, while Netflix France is only in French lol. So here it is, in French with English subtitles, via Netflix Asia :D

    Trailer for part 2 which drops June 11th.



  • Moderators, Entertainment Moderators Posts: 27,161 Mod ✭✭✭✭ pixelburp

    Watched the second part of this in the past couple of days. Plot holes and conveniences that you could fly a jumbo jet through but an enjoyable romp all the same. The camera work and the music in particular are fantastic.

    I assume there will be a second series at some stage.

    It's loosely based on the books, so plenty of potential seasons

    I think there were 10-12 books

    Part 1 was excellent really enjoyed it.

    Part 2 was terrible, really let down...


  • Registered Users Posts: 25,406 ✭✭✭✭ GreeBo


    IrishTimes review was calling the second drop "The Event of the Summer"
    I find it impossible to watch with the awful dubbing, its like they got the cheapest voice actors possible and recorded their audio independently, no sense of them interacting with each other and each desperately trying to put super emphasis on every single word they say.
    A total miss for me I'm afraid, i'd expect the subtitled version to be a lot better.


  • Moderators, Entertainment Moderators Posts: 27,161 Mod ✭✭✭✭ pixelburp


    Yeah, sounds like dubbing; why did you choose that option in the first instance, out of curiosity?

    We turned off the dubbing and went with the French audio and subtitles. Much better.

    Just watching episode 6 now, or part 2 episode 1. Wow the drop off in quality is massive. Huge elements of the plot in this episode simply make no sense. Its like they had preplanned set pieces and forgot they had to actually explain how they got to that point. And that assassin fella would have been an embarrassment to feckin' stormtroopers he was so bad at his job.

    EDIT: 5 mins into episode 6 and it's jumped the shark entirely. It's simply stopped making any sense at all.

    I think the show is a bit of a cartoon, and I mean that as both compliment and criticism. It's light and effortless entertainment, but internal logic can sometimes go west. The show got a big "hmmm..." from me when a big plot pivot depended on it never occurring to characters to make a USB backup.

    But damnit if the lead isn't the Most Charming Man in France, so I'm along for the ride.

    It's basically the Pink Panther imo.

    The younger kid is the image of Omar Sy also, uncanny resemblance/characteristics/etc.
