bring to life the most iconic Lupine III film
While his latest film, The Boy and the Heron, continues to conquer the box office, cinema celebrates Oscar winner Hayao Miyazaki with the return to the big screen of another absolute masterpiece: LUPINE III – THE CASTLE OF CAGLIOSTRO, the anime which in 1979 marked his feature film directorial debut and which became the first animated film presented at the Cannes Film Festival.
On 4, 5, 6 March the film will arrive in Italian cinemas (list shortly on nexodigital.it) in a remastered and restored version in 4K, presented with historical Italian voices, to allow fans to relive Lupine’s most beautiful adventure directed by Miyazaki, in one of the most famous titles in the entire history of anime.
In the film LUPINE III – THE CASTLE OF CAGLIOSTRO, the protagonists are Lupine III and his faithful companion Jigen. Together, they managed to identify the source of the counterfeit banknotes that brought the world economy to its knees: Cagliostro, the smallest state in the world governed by the count of the same name. Inside the stone walls of the castle, the count holds the beautiful Clarisse prisoner, who holds the key to access a treasure of inestimable value. Lupine wishes to free the girl, punish the wicked and, of course, secure the treasure. In this extraordinary adventure, there is no shortage of other key characters of the saga such as the seductive Fujiko and the tenacious Inspector Zenigata.
