A gentlemanly crook, Lupin’s code of conduct has served him well over the years, as he only robs the homes of the wealthy and of other criminals. Over the course of his many adventures, Lupin meets Joséphine (Kristin Scott Thomas), a mysterious woman with curious abilities, and becomes involved in a treasure hunt.|
