Lupin III: The Castle of Cagliostro

The Oscars were recently awarded in Hollywood; The Boy and the Heron, the masterful animated film by Studio Ghibli founder Hayao Miyazaki, was awarded the Oscar for Best Animated Feature. It is his second, as he also won that Oscar in 2003 for Spirited Away. This year marks 45 years since Myazaki made his first feature-length animated film, Lupin III: the Castle of Cagliostro. The animation style in this particularly entertaining adventure film is different from his later work at the time, but those who look closely, especially at how textures of buildings, for example, are drawn, recognise the hand of the master.

In the last days of his career, gentleman-thief Lupin makes his very last, big score: together with his accomplice Jigen, he robs the Monte Carlo Casino. However, the stolen money turns out to be counterfeit. The trail to this couterfeit money leads the two to the smallest country in the world: Cagliostro. There they face the evil Count Cagliostro, who holds Princess Clarisse captive. The adventure begins.
