Synopsis

After a successful robbery leaves famed thief Lupin III and his partner Jigen with nothing but a large amount of fake money, the so called "Goat Bills", he decides to track down the counterfeiter responsible - and steal any other treasures he may find in the Castle of Cagliostro, including the 'damsel in distress' he finds imprisoned there. However, as usual, Inspector Zenigata is hot on his trail.

Tracking the legendary counterfeits known as "Goat Bills," international thief Arsene Lupin III arrives at the Duchy of Cagliostro. Once there, he nearly rescues a damsel in distress from the Regent's guards. Following his failure, Lupin takes it upon himself to save her from captivity.

The Castle of Cagliostro is a masterpiece.

Lupin and Jigen are following the trail of some counterfeit money to a castle in a small independent country in Europe. This leads them to a girl from Lupin's past in need of a hero.

Miyazaki's first feature film is a great one. He takes the already lovable Lupin cast and makes them just a bit more innocent, which gives this a very pleasant fairy tale feel. The characters are charming, and it's a joy watching the story unfold.

In this great adventure, our heroes set out to save the damsel in a tower from an evil count. The always great read more

When most think of revered anime director Hayao Miyazaki, they immediately think of seminal classics such as Spirited Away and Princess Mononoke. However, when I think of Miyazaki I think of a little film called The Castle of Cagliostro, which just so happens to be his directorial debut. To understand exactly what this film is, we have to travel back to 1971.

Little known director Masaaki Ōsumi directed a show called Lupin III, an action/adventure/comedy series based upon the exploits of the eponymous master thief from the manga by Monkey Punch, which in turn was inspired by Maurice Leblanc’s crime novels about gentleman thief Arsène read more

Star Rating (out of four): ***

The Castle of Cagliostro has a peculiar opening. A master thief named Lupin III and his partner-in-crime, Daisuke Jigen, have successfully stolen millions of dollars from a grand casino. Or so it seems. It turns that the money was actually counterfeit, the work of a high-class crime lord name Cagliostro. Yet Lupin isn’t angry; quite the opposite. It’s fascinating how quickly he forgets the loss and gets pumped up for his next big steal. This is the ideal thief, a man not so much interested in robbing to get rich than in the act of robbing itself. And judging by read more

The Castle of Cagliostro is a really great movie. It's obviously quite old, seeing as how the animation can be choppy at times, but the characters are great and the story is wonderful.

Story-

The storyline of this movie is well-developed and fast-paced. Unlike some Miyazaki movies, the Castle of Cagliostro has a fast-paced storyline that is very easy to understand.

Art-

The art in this movie is alright... It's certainly not the best from Hayao Miyazaki, considering it's one of his first films, but the art is still good. The backgrounds and
buildings, however, are very beautiful and realistic, and the characters look a little like cartoons. read more

Recommendations

Another Ghibli movie, this one holds the same charms. When I watched Castle of Cagliostro I couldn't help but think of moments in Laputa; they felt fairly linked in parts. If you enjoyed this one, watch Laputa, without a doubt!
In many ways Cowboy Bebop is a lot like a Lupin III in space. Both involve dangerous missions for money, beautiful women and dashes of comedy.
Cowboy Bebop is more darker and violent than "Cagliostro" but both give you a feeling of high flying adventure!

The sense of adventure mixed with real life danger is present in both although Baccano is a whole lot more graphic. Plus Lupin and Issac feel like exactly the same character.
they both tell the story of elite thiefs

A lot of the same themes: crests, ancient mysteries, puzzles, enormous castles, and masked villains.
