Castle of Cagliostro - The first feature film by Hayao Miyazaki, Castle of Cagliostro is a movie instalment in the hugely popular Lupin III animated TV series, of which Miyazaki had written and directed a number of episodes.
Here, our iconic super-thief Lupin pulls off a thrilling heist at a Monte Carlo casino, only to discover the spoils are counterfeit. Lupin traces the fake bills to the country of Cagliostro where an evil Count is generating forged money and distributing it worldwide. With partners in tow (including a retired gangster, a modern-day samurai, and a beautiful female thief) Lupin heads to Cagliostro where he also finds a promise of hidden treasure and Clarice, a beautiful Princess in need of rescuing from the Count’s dastardly clutches.
