Fun with Languages Fridays: Lupin, 1:5


                 Fun with Languages Friday is French Fridays with Lupin, Chptr 5 !     Omar Sy style!!

     ***Spoilers!!  ( episode 4 was last week…)


   This episode should be called “I Know Everything: about Raul !”


     They name Lupin’s  son Raúl  because, of course , the son of of Arséne Lupin, in the books is named Raúl. They have a very close connection, but he always lets her down even though he makes up for it stolen jewelry.  He is a gentleman, but not the classic type. So of course we go from Raúl’s conception to the present day with his birthday and then tragedy strikes. This is a very good episode : showing Claire and their son and how closely connected the three of them are in an unconventional way. And of course the festival of Maurice Leblanc on his birthday at the fort from the story of L’aiguille Creuse
    And finally there is a connection with the books in terms of characters: the child of a maid who is wrongly accused of theft ends up stealing jewelry in order to support her in her old age, and as the theft is actually committed the by child, a prodigy, the mother is accused.   
   Nice social commentary from that time to ours.
(for those who like the commentary (mostly) in French:  (I listened to the story on but via the phone app…)
