Synopsis

This adventure-comedy brings the beloved anime series to three dimensions, as it follows gentleman thief Arsène Lupin III and his crew to 1960s Paris and Brazil. The target: the Bresson Diary, itself a guide to find the Eclipse, an immense treasure once sought by the Nazis. Lupin is foiled by a young archaeology student named Laetitia, but they soon join forces when they learn who else is on the trail, hiding out in South America, and what technological horrors the Eclipse might be used for.
