Book Review: Arséne Lupin, After Seeing It Omar Sy Style

The common good, or the general welfare, might just become more fully inclusive for all of us with a little help from our new Gentleman Bandit/Burglar, Omar Sy.

  I might even have to erase this review, ahem:

Je suis navrée, mais je n’aimerais pas ce livre. Pas du tout. Depuis le commencement jusqu’à l’arrivée du Sherlock Holmes volé, et là, il devenait encore pire. Au moins pour moi.

and

in English:

I’m sorry, but I really did not like this book, at all.  From the start, up to the arrival of the stolen ‘Sherlock Holmes’ it just got worse, and worse, at least for me.

and write it all over again, from a different point of view!  After all, that is what Adults do, no?

So, it turns out that updating a classic series with a new perspective can really put a different spin on things, and maybe even make a difference in this world.

Action Items:

1.) Share two different sources related to the Arséne Lupin series, and to the Holocene Epoch and to the Holocene Calendar.

2.) Share your thoughts on how a calendar based on the Holocene Epoch might help, or hinder, inclusive thinking,

3.) Write a story, post or tweet that uses it.

French Fridays, and One Lesson from Lupin, Ch. 10 (P2e5) about Authority

 

                 Fun with Languages Friday  (mostly in English this week!): Lupin #10 !

  The lesson in this last episode:   The police are not always corrupt or incompetent.  No authorities are either bad nor good, but must be judged individually, based upon their actions, as should we all.

     Like Ganimard, in the original stories, Guédira is reasonably intelligent, reasonably competent, and a good man, who wants to do the right thing.   

       French Fridays with Lupin, Omar Sy style, presents the last episode of Part 2, and the incredible finale:

 
 
    La musique va parfaitment avec le drame !
    The concert is perfectly matched to the action!
Lupin10
 
   Et, en fin, les polices ne sont ni incompetents ni corrumpus !  Merci !!
   And, at last, police who are neither incompetent nor on the take!  Thank you!!
 
 
  Il a, en fin, fait tomber Pellegrini  !!    He has finally brought down Pellegrini!!
 
   Or at least, so it seems…

 

       
 
 

Chapter 9 aka Part 2, episode 4, was last week.

I look forward to Part 3 (if I have access to Netflix, still…) and to your thoughts.

  1.)   Never give up.

   2.)  Trust your friends.

Lupin9

French Fridays with Lupin, Omar Sy style!

   This episode review has a few spoilers, but mostly translated French. 

 

We have the small fish, so we let the shark go, because the corrupt official orders us to.

 

 
And the dog of a dead woman torturing the poor friend of Assàne.
 
I love those busts from the stories of Lupin where the original Gentleman Cambrioleur has a thief stealing identical busts for something hidden inside one of them.
 
Well, her father has definitely thrown spanner in the works for Assàne now.  And for his loyal friend, too.
 
 
Excellent saving of Ben!!  And the two maps of the catacombs.
 
But he is not a murderer!!
 
 
How easy it is to break most people’s passcodes because they use easy to break codes.  Wow what an excellent getaway or hiding spot.
 
I won’t be surprised if a little accident happens to Mrs. Pelligrini.
 
Et il ne lâche pas !
 
Excellent planning ahead, by 20 years!!
Like the Professor in La Casa de Papel!!
 
Wow, yes, they did use it one day!!
 
And they gave the map back: a few years later!!
 
Mais non l’argent n’est pas à l’origine du monde !!
No, money is not at the origin of the world!!
 
Nice hiding place for a USB!
 
But now is the time to turn in all of the evidence, on everyone…
 
And then, we finish off Pelligrini.
Yes!!

French Fridays, and One Lesson Lupin, Ch. 8 Teaches us about Black History

 

                 Fun with Languages Friday  (Spoilers left untranslated !): Lupin #8 (P2e3) !

French Fridays with Lupin, Omar Sy style!

   This episode should be called “Inter-generational Revenge… “

 

    Lesson:  Racism matters, and history matters: repair your damage…

Why would he allow Juliet to play with him like that when he knows she’s a player? 

 

 
Oui, il vise la fille.   …  Yup, he’s targeting the girl.
 
And I suppose there’s no better way to get a teenager to do something then to prohibit the teenager from doing it.

 

Lupin8

But he can’t actually be doing this for her reasons.
 
Et en visant la fille parce que le père a visé son fils il va la faire croire qu’il est tout prêt il est prêt à tout pour elle pour qu’elle soit prête à tout pour lui.
 
And he is not obsessed with her father, her father is an outright racist.
Oh, so he had to gain her confidence in order to get her to talk to her mother, who knows where the bodies are and they get her to tell the police where the bodies are.
 
Yup, all that for a coffee!
 
I wonder if she knows yet that her father has been stealing from her foundation.
 
I love how they keep going back to that same Pier on the Seine where he was being treated badly by the kids the loosest kids and now you see that racism being not exactly undone but partly in this kiss at that same place.  Very well done.
 
        
 
 
 

Chapter 7 aka Part 2, episode 2,  was last week, and then

        Part 2, ep. 4 , aka Ch. 9,  will post next week.

French Fridays, & Two Lessons Lupin, Ch. 7, Teaches About Trust

     French Fridays with Lupin, Omar Sy style!

  (all in English this week, but listening,  and using the CCs for the Hard of Hearing to catch ‘swallowed’ words, is excellent practice for learning a language…)

   This episode, p2e2, should be called “When not to trust authority… ”

 

 
        Wow, 

   So,

       1.)  Assàne is right not to trust even a good-hearted police officer under the command of a bad one.

     2.)  He is also right to have a backup hiding place, even at the home of his son’s mother.

     We see that the police officer being given orders by the commissioner who is completely on the taken in the hands of the really evil bad guy, makes Assàne right: They are either all incompetent or directly or indirectly on the take. Because even our good guy fan of Lupin police officer who’s  has rescued the kid, still has no choice but to obey the order of his commissioner, who is in the employee of the filthy rich lying manipulative abusive scumbag.
LupinChp7
 
     Soon, poor Raul is caught in the middle of all this, rescued by the police officer who then has to turn him over to the bad guy, who also has a backup plan for when Assàne manages to get Raul free.
 
     Great scenario, and extremely good, if sad, commentary on our society. Racism is alive and well, and so is classism. And how do you root out corruption??
 
 
 

Chapter 6 aka Part 2, episode 1, was the first episode in Part 2. 

Next Friday, Chptr 8, aka Part 2, ep 3,  will post.

I look forward to your thoughts.

Fun with Languages Fridays: Lupin: Chptr 6

 

                 Fun with Languages Friday  (mostly in English this week!): Lupin #6 !

 

French Fridays with Lupin, Omar Sy style!

   This episode should be called “Everybody makes mistakes, even Assàne…”

 

 
        Wow, the teaser for part 2 is great but the trailer for part 2 is absolutely unbelievably amazing!

 

 
Passons à la magie…         Yes!!
Let the magic begin…
 
    Wow, what an episode. This episode was basically about Assàne’s mistakes as he learned to emulate Lupin, and the mistake he makes this time when his son is taken as a hostage used as bait against him. What a horrifying ending. And what incredible cruelty and incompetence on the part of the female police officer not to check the car because she assumes that he’s lying.  And then to withhold the information because she still thinks he’s lying.   He’s basically right and it seems the majority of the police officers are either on the take or incompetent.   Let’s hope that his buddy the fellow Lupin fan, is not.

 

 
 

     I think we learn, in this chapter, that everyone makes mistakes, and needs a Plan B (or Plan C).

 Part 1, episode 5, was the last episode in Part 1.   

then,

Part 2, ep 2, aka Chptr 7,  posts.

I look forward to your thoughts.

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.

Fun with Languages Fridays: Lupin, 1:3

 

                 Fun with Languages Friday:  mostly English, and a little stream-of-consciousness…

     ***Spoilers!

French Fridays with Lupin, Omar Sy style!

   This third episode is all about how Assàne kidnaps Commissair DuMont, brilliantly.  And Dumont eventually asks his forgiveness.  And the school, paid for by the “generous donatrice” where this kid did not lack courage!  Launching at three kids all by himself!  🙂   So there we see his history of bravery, already shown back in the 2nd episode!   I’ve not yet read LeBlanc’s story  where Lupin kidnaps a person and never leaves the building, but the policeman afficcionado of the stories references it as he figures it out, leading his colleagues to Dumont.
Lupin1ep3
 
Poor Guidira:  “Patron… Pas Lupin encore!”   He’s right, but no one believes him!  His middle name should be Cassandra!! 
 
And Dumont should have stuck to his guns, 25 years ago!!
LupinChpt3
Before he went back to smoking…
 
 
 
    And now, Dumont’s wife knows he’s a liar, and so do the police.  And best of all, Assàne knows that Pellegrini is implicated…
 
 

     I also have a short historical fiction series called  Ann & Anna, about two women and a small girl escaping slavery through 1855 Maryland.  I  hope that this series will move you to learn more ways to help use our history to build new tools.

  Chapter 2 was last Friday, and Chapter 4  will post this coming Friday. 

(See all of my Lupin reviews on this list.)   (Part 1: ep1, part 1: ep2, part 1:ep3, and part 1:ep4 from previous Fun French Fridays…)

                 Fun with Languages Friday:  English translation right after the French!

 

French Fridays with Lupin, Omar Sy style!

 

   Wow!!

Bon il a bossé son technique d’évasion.

 

C’est vrai. Elle n’est pas innocente.   Et son fils, il sait déjà distinguer.  Mais pourquoi allait-il en prison?  !!
Son père était très attentive al ortographie quelque chose que seulement son fils  soura.  Mais non il n’y a pas de hasard dans la vie.  Sûr tout quand on avais une lettre, un mot de suicide comme ça. 
Évidemment il va utiliser les mêmes techniques qu’a utilisé Arsène Lupin en allant en prison lui-même.  Comme dans les histoires.   Le coût de menottes !  Chouette !!
Et voilà la fille de la Mère dans sa cage dorée parce qu’elle savent Ou son les cadavres.
 
Et le pauvre policier qui sait qu’il est en train de voir les histoires d’Arsène Lupin dans la vraie vie mais personne ne le croit.
 
Et le drame le plus haut et honorable possible :   nettoyer le bon nom de son père.
 
 
 
He has definitely improved his technique of getting away. It’s true she is not innocent and his son already knows how to distinguish. But why is he in prison?  !!
 And his father was very particular about spelling. That’s a detail and only his son would know. Nice.  And there is no such thing as coincidence when it comes to a letter like this a suicide note.
And obviously he’s going to use the same techniques, going to prison, as Arsène Lupin did in the stories.
 
Oh god, the Foster /orphanage place was just like the prison!
Ah, right, the one the daughter of the one who knows where the bodies are hidden.
 
Poor policeman!
And the best highest noblest drama possible to clear  the good name of his father.
 
 
 
 
    Wow!
 
 

     I also have a short historical fiction series called  Ann & Anna.  I  hope that the series about two (or three!) young women escaping bondage will move you to learn more ways to help use our history to build new tools.

Fun with Languages Fridays: Lupin, 1:1, aka P1e1

 

                 Fun with Languages Friday:   French Fridays with Lupin, Omar Sy style!

 

               I love how the first episode moves between excerpts from the Arsène Lupin book(s), and the present-day character played by Sy.  I had a very difficult time getting into the original work by Maurice Leblanc, at least as read on LibriVox.org.  It seemed to me that the first story was more of a cynical rip-off of Sherlock Holmes, and at the expense of a working class person, to boot, than anything I might eventually find uplifting.  I listened for a while, and decided that a story like that of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s “The Yellow Face” was beyond Mr. Leblanc.  Nevertheless, in the hands of a character played by Omar Sy, the Gentleman-Cambrioleur became a compelling one.  The modern story for why he turns his brilliant mind to crime provides the change of perspective necessary for me to pay attention, once more, to this apparently popular classic French series.

   I was going to comment only in English, but I did take a note or two in French, which I do more often as I get immersed in the series.   I hope you dear Readers do not mind:

Il semble que les costauds ne peuvent pas courir.

 
C’est parfait, avoir le livre comme cadeau de son père
 
10% par semaine !!
 
English:
 
So apparently, big guys can’t run and it’s perfect the way the book was presented as a gift from the father. 10% per week no wonder these guys are kneecappers!!
 
 
    I love Sy’s work, from Lupin, to the film Le Chant Du Loup, to his (I think) breakout film Intouchables.  I wonder where he stands, in the short line of Black actors who have made such a difference in western film?  He certainly makes a brilliant contribution.
 
 
   The review for Lupin Châpitre 2 will be the week after next…
 
Happy New Year, 12022 HE (Human/Holocene Era)!
Shira
 
 

     I also have a short historical fiction series called  Ann & Anna.  I  hope that this series will move you to learn more ways to help use our history to build new tools.  Part 12 was last Sunday.
