Master filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki made his feature film debut with this beloved chapter of Monkey Punch's Lupin the 3rd saga. In the twilight of his career, gentleman thief Lupin III's latest and greatest caper has hit a snag. What should've been bags of cash from a national casino turns out to be expert counterfeits! Together with his partner-in-crime Jigen, Lupin heads to the remote nation of Cagliostro to exact revenge. Not everything goes as planned; the two encounter Clarisse, a royal damsel in distress being forced to marry the sinister Count Cagliostro against her will. Saving her won't be easy, however, as Lupin and Jigen - together with the unpredictable lady thief Fujiko and the swordsman Goemon - must fight their way through a trap-filled castle, a deadly dungeon, and an army of professional assassins! Can Lupin rescue Clarisse, evade the cuffs of his long-time nemesis Inspector Zenigata, and uncover the secret treasures of the Castle of Cagliostro?
