Assane's father is framed for the theft of an expensive diamond necklace by his employer, the wealthy and powerful Hubert Pellegrini, and hangs himself in his prison cell out of shame, leaving the teenage Assane an orphan. Twenty-five years later, inspired by a book about gentleman thiefArsène Lupin his father had given him on his birthday, Assane sets out to get revenge on the Pellegrini family, using his charisma and mastery of thievery, subterfuge, and disguise to expose Hubert's crimes.

Not my type of show, but as a French person, I'm so happy that Omar Sy can have international success

Yes, I thought the same whew :jonny: 

Does anyone know if this is related to the cartoon Lupen (watched it in a different language so spelling might be off). The storyline was similar wherein he was also a thief but would only take stuff from villains. Just curious but also that character is white so... idk

well they just both take inspiration from the same book character, which is also presented in the show (Arsène Lupin). This character has inspired various shows, movies etc.

I’ve really enjoyed watching it. There are some flaws but it’s refreshing for a French TV show. Also I’m really proud of Omar Sy, I’m hoping this will give him more interesting projects

So well deserved. Just binge watched all five episodes and it was so captivating. So happy for Omar. Went from a successful comedian to a successful actor.

the first two episodes were good but they kinda lost me on the third one when omar went all jigsaw on that detective :rip: and the whole necklace conspiracy is becoming a little too convoluted. but I'll definitely watch the remaining two episodes. omar is gorgeous!
