Lupin (2021) s03e04 Episode Script

Chapter 4

Where's my mother?
She's not here.
Call your boss.
Right now.
Drop the gun. There's nothing
you can do. You should know that.
I'm with Assane.
Sanni, there's nothing
you can do to stop these people.
The more you try,
the worse it gets for me.
You have to do what they say, Sanni.
It's the only way.
Here's what you have to do next,
so listen to me carefully.
Okay, so, did you find them?
Tell me. What did they say?
Come on. I'll explain.
The Red Sea.
Five sapphires in a bracelet
owned by Tara Xang.
- Wife of real estate mogul Max Moller.
- Exactly.
They're coming from Munich
for a gala at the Château de Thoiry.
They want us to steal
the bracelet at the event.
- Th that's impossible.
- Why's that?
That bracelet, its value doesn't come
from the gems, but the clasp.
Designed by Robert Robin,
Louis XVI's clockmaker.
A genius. My hero.
It is the most complex bracelet clasp.
It's not a problem.
Because I have an exact replica of it.
With the clasp as well.
So I can practice.
- You have one?
- I will.
- No, no, no.
- Why not?
- I can't do it.
- Of course you can.
Come on, please, Ben.
Assane, I I don't think so. For real.
Let's slip them a fake
or find another way.
I can't take the risk.
If I screw up, they'll kill her.
I don't have a choice.
I wish there was another way.
But she's my mom.
Okay, I'll try it.
Thank you.
You're my hero.
I know.
Sorry I'm late.
I thought
you were too busy to meet.
I ended up making time.
Well, I only have
five minutes before work.
I think you might see Raoul
a lot these days,
and I was thinking
he might confide in you,
tell you some things he won't tell me.
And I was wondering
if perhaps you might tell me?
Like I said already, I'm not a snitch.
No, not snitching. You would just, um
No, I just wanna know what he tells you.
All right, that's exactly
what a snitch is. I'm sorry.
I'll see what I can do.
Thank you.
I don't know why,
but it's easy talking to you.
It's simple. I enjoy it.
That's cool.
Now, don't get me wrong. I'm not hitting
on you or anything like that, okay?
No, no, no, it's cool.
It's all good.
No, but I don't want to be rude.
I just thought we could be,
um, you know, friends or something.
Yeah, friends friends is awesome.
Friend zone.
- Right.
- Yeah.
Trapped for good.
I can't find him.
Are you sure you spelled it right?
- Try it without the S.
- Okay.
Ah, Claire!
- How are you?
- Mm-hm.
Uh, I'm sorry to bother you with this,
but do you know Dr. Vernes?
He identified the body.
I need to give his report to the police.
They want the contact for anyone
who had access to the morgue that night.
And we checked the database,
but we can't find Vernes.
Substitutes come and go.
Also, sometimes it takes a while
before they're in the system.
Right. Keep looking, okay?
- And keep me posted.
- Mm-hm.
Well, then, I should get going.
- Excuse me?
- Yes?
If you find his ID,
would you send it to me too?
- Yeah.
- Thank you.
Of course.
You've reached
Fleur Bélanger.
Please leave
She's only worn
the bracelet once in public.
- There's lots of security around it.
- Mm-hm.
Getting inside the castle
won't be easy.
Walls two meters high.
Volumetric alarm, as well as cameras
inside the building and in the garden.
How do you know all this?
What did I expect? You've been there.
It's my mom. Sue me.
But there is a way.
The Château de Thoiry.
Fifty-one rooms, three receptions halls,
over 1,000-acre garden.
A humongous labyrinth.
But most importantly,
a ton of employees work there.
That's our way in.
- Hello.
- Hello.
Oh, hello.
- Mathieu sent you, right?
- Who's that?
I knew I couldn't handle it
by myself. It's impossible.
And what are you doing here?
- I work for Mathieu.
- Mathieu?
Mathieu Leblanc, the landscaper?
Tall, stylish. You know, kind of a douche?
- Yeah, that rings a bell.
- There you go, that's him.
- He sent me to help replant the hedges.
- Why would we replant?
- Oh, did you finish?
- Well, no.
Are you kidding me, guys?
The soil here is incredibly dense.
Dense soil means poor water drainage.
- Right.
- Poor water drainage means
- The roots are gonna rot, you guys!
- I told you. Didn't I?
- Did you not check your WhatsApp?
- Huh? Uh
Um, what?
Okay, well, we got
our work cut out for us.
I bet you're gonna tell me
you weren't on the Zoom call.
- On on what?
- Zoom call?
- On
- Zoom call, man.
I'm saying this to help you.
You need to wake up.
- You do know about the gala?
- Yeah.
If we're not ready
in time for the gala,
then it looks like
we're gonna be out of a job.
I can't afford that. I don't know
about you two, but I'm struggling.
So, wake up. You're sleeping
on the job. Y'all want that?
- Okay, how can we help?
- Come on, let's go. Follow me!
Guys, seriously!
What do we need to do?
The people who work in places like these
take their jobs very seriously.
They work hard,
and the owners trust them completely.
They handle their most valuable
possessions without stealing.
And they pamper the clients.
Good afternoon.
So, we need to find
the right employee.
Someone who can get us
as close to the clients as possible.
Allow me to take your coat, madam.
Someone who can touch them
without arousing any suspicions.
A cloakroom attendant.
If you please.
- So on the night of the gala
- Mm.
We'll stand in
for the cloakroom attendant.
And then it's ours.
Not bad.
But it won't be so easy
with the Robin one.
All right, let's see.
- If you please.
- Thank you.
Come on, come on.
That didn't work.
- Yeah.
- Yeah.
- Yeah, I should practice some more.
- Yeah. I think so.
Nice job with the statuette.
Keller's really happy with you.
I'm part of the family now.
Don't be so cocky.
Don't lean forward.
And keep your weight on your back leg.
To maintain your distance. I know.
That way, your pretty face
won't get messed up.
Yeah, right.
What about you?
Do you always maintain your distance?
Excuse me?
Well, I I'm asking
if you always maintain your distance.
Sorry to interrupt.
- Keller's not gonna like this.
- Bruno, look, it's not what you think.
Hey, wait!
Hey, forget it.
He's just jealous. Leave him alone.
Come on.
Hold on. Excuse me.
- Hello?
- Hello?
This is Fleur Bélanger from The Objector.
You called me?
Yes, thanks for calling me back.
I wanted to know
why you doubted that Assane was dead.
Uh, well, it's difficult
to explain on the phone.
Can we meet up?
It'd be great
if you could give me an interview.
You can tell your story
instead of letting other people
Oh, no, no, no. No, no.
No interview, no.
I'll think about it.
I'll call you back.
Thank you.
How are you?
- Is that the journalist from before?
- Yeah.
But I called her.
I don't know.
- You called her?
- Yes.
Well, all right.
Okay, what?
No, it's just that, if you can't move on,
how is Raoul supposed to move on?
Right, so, thanks for the advice,
but, you know, Raoul is my son.
- Yeah, of course.
- And I'm raising him all on my own.
- Of course.
- You get it?
- I didn't mean to
- Bye. Come on, let's go.
- Okay. See you, Coach.
- See you, Raoul!
What's going on in your room?
Should we condemn it
or do I have to call an exterminator?
You can clean it up!
- You have my permission.
- How nice.
He's not dead anyway. It's all fake.
- Why do you say that, honey?
- We're talking about Dad here.
He's Lupin.
"Edith Swanneck"?
- You wanted to see me?
- Yeah.
Manon tell you
about the entrance fee? It's 5,000.
Yeah, but it used to be 3,000.
That was before.
Assane raised the bar. It's your turn.
Oh, right, okay.
Assane's great, right?
Everyone loves the guy.
Especially Manon.
They're really into each other.
You sure about that?
Just telling you what I saw.
Come on.
Ferdinand, your arm needs to extend.
There, much better.
Keep going.
Keep your guard up. All the time!
Like that!
- Move and shift your center!
- Hey!
So, Assane's messing around with my girl?
Is that true?
See, I know Manon.
And she would never do that to me.
So, the question is,
why are you betraying your friend?
In this room, loyalty is all that matters.
So if you have a problem
with each other, handle it.
Or we do it our way.
Tomorrow night, both of you in the ring.
The fight will end
when you show some respect for each other.
Now get out!
Okay, so this isn't
the final version.
I know.
I really oiled this one up.
But you can do it.
Of course I can do it.
I got this.
- See you in five minutes?
- Okay.
- Seriously?
- What? I'm practicing.
I hate you.
- Hello.
- Hello, sir. I'm the communication tech.
Just letting you know we're doing
the installation this weekend.
Wait, what installation?
We're replacing the
the antenna over there. Yeah? There.
- Oh, yeah.
- Right.
So, while we're replacing it,
it will cut off your network and, uh
- Do you have Wi-Fi as well?
- Yeah.
That'll be out. Service will be out
between 6 p.m. and midnight on Saturday.
It's explained here in this booklet.
I just need your signature here.
It just says I came by
and told you what's happening.
- Sure.
- We apologize for the inconvenience.
It's not a problem. I'll be at work.
Saturday night? That's rough.
Yeah, working on a Saturday night
for the same pay. Ridiculous, right?
I gotta do the same. I'll be working too.
- Good luck to you.
- Thanks.
- Bye, sir.
- Have a nice day.
- See you.
- Bye.
- Hello.
- Hello.
- I'd like a reader's pass.
- Of course. Thank you.
Uh you a fan of Lupin?
- Why do you ask?
- Well, it's been crazy since this article.
Flying off the shelf.
And you you read it?
- No.
- Well, it's amazing. I can lend you one.
No, thank you.
Um, I'm much more interested in, um
Ancient Egypt.
- Ah.
- Cheops, Giza, Abu Simbel, all that.
Okay, um
Happy reading.
You didn't call me about the article.
You didn't like it?
I did. I just don't want to get caught.
Someone might notice.
Relax. Either way, I owe you one.
- Would you like to have dinner tonight?
- Uh
Yeah. Yeah, yeah. Why not?
I'll call you back.
Are you completely insane?
"A source close to the investigation"?
- You think no one will notice?
- I don't know what you're talking about.
- It's not me.
- Hey, I'm not an idiot.
Do you understand
what could happen to you?
We're searching for the pearl.
This is obstruction of justice.
Do you understand that?
Are you trying to impress your girlfriend?
You jealous?
Huh? Jealous? That's ridiculous.
This a bad time?
- Uh, no.
- No.
- Cool. Got it.
- Cool.
This is it. Awesome.
- Oh, I'm so sorry!
- It's all right.
I don't know what happened. I don't know.
Maybe you shouldn't wear sunglasses
inside, you dumbass.
- Okay.
- That's what happened.
- Yeah, that must be it.
- Yeah.
Oh, but it's all good, right?
Anyway, you look really cool.
The hair and everything, it's amazing.
- Oh, shit.
- See you. Have a good day!
There you go.
- Done.
- Can I see?
- She'll never know the difference.
- If you manage to swap with the real one.
All right, let's do this. I'm pumped.
But it isn't enough.
Okay, that's enough. The rest of the plan.
- Uh, again?
- Come on.
One more time, okay?
When I have the bracelet,
I exit the building
and I head toward the labyrinth.
Great. And once you're in there?
- Are you serious?
- No, go on.
Right, left, right until the center.
Okay, and to get out?
Left, right, right, right, right,
left, right, right, left, right, left,
left, right, left, right.
You'll be at the exit,
and we escape together.
Thank you.
You see? Even he knows I know.
The most important CEOs will be there.
I want your best people.
- You'll get our very best.
- Max Moller will give a short speech.
He needs to be in the center of the table.
- We'll take care of it.
- Great.
Also, uh I'm assuming
your staff is irreproachable.
- I trust them all completely.
- Hmm.
Oh, no.
Oh, shit.
Service will be out
between 6 p.m. and midnight on Saturday.
It's explained here in this booklet.
- Good evening.
- Good evening.
If I may.
Ma'am, your coat, please?
- Darling, may I?
- Oh.
Thank you.
There you go.
Thank you.
Good evening.
Ladies and gentlemen,
thank you for being here.
Really, we're so grateful
that you're here.
I would like to give our thanks
to our lovely hosts
for this unique opportunity
I'll check on everything.
for us to meet, exchange ideas
Just stay calm.
We'll get the bracelet when they leave.
I'm sorry, who are you?
I, um I'm I'm working in the cloakroom.
I can see that,
but that's not what I'm asking.
Where's Gérard?
- Um, what's the
- Unfortunately, he's not coming back.
- Uh, no.
- He asked us to fill in for him.
Cornélius, enchanté.
Don't worry, Alain and I have worked
the finest coatrooms of Paris.
Gérard asked me to personally hand you
his letter of resignation.
- The poor man was exhausted.
- Oh, yes. So tired.
- Exploited, even.
- Exploited is a strong word to use.
- Well
- His words, ma'am, not mine.
I would never say that.
I just need your signature here.
It just says I came by
and told you what's happening.
By the way, ma'am,
I wanted to point out
that the hangers are made of plastic
instead of wood.
And I believe I can detect
a slight scent of mold?
- Yeah. Oh, yes.
- Hmm?
- Yes, quite noticeable.
- Yes.
I would hate to report
this kind of thing to our union.
I don't wanna do it,
but unfortunately, nowadays
I have to report
any sort of negligence.
- You get it.
- Of course.
My apologies to you.
I'll take care of it.
And, um thank you
for filling in on such short notice.
Oh, it's fine. It's normal.
- We're very passionate.
- That's true.
Hop to it!
Good night.
Thank you.
Thank you.
My wife, ladies and gentlemen.
I don't care what you said.
I don't want to fight you, Bruno.
Assane, Bruno, get in the ring.
- Thank you so much for coming.
- Wonderful.
- I did.
- You did?
- If I may.
- Thank you. Excellent.
Have a nice night.
- Tara?
- Yeah.
Excuse me.
I'm so clumsy.
Please forgive me. There we go.
What's going on here?
- Go!
- I got him!
What what the hell happened?
Sanni, there's nothing
you can do to stop these people.
The more you try,
the worse it gets for me.
You have to do what they say, Sanni.
It's the only way.
Here's what you have to do next,
so listen to me carefully.
You need to steal
a bracelet from Tara Xang.
But this time,
they want the police to catch the thief.
They want me to get arrested?
Why don't you just turn me in?
You won't be
the one who is caught, Sanni.
This just arrived.
Says there's a robbery happening tomorrow.
- Is it Diop?
- No.
Benjamin Férel.
It is one thing
to betray someone.
But betraying a friend
who has always been there for you,
it's different.
But it isn't enough.
This time,
it's not just about stealing a bracelet.
It's about testing how far you will go.
Go, go! Hurry, hurry!
To know
what matters most to you.
- Search everywhere!
- There he is!
Let's go.
- Fight! Come on!
- Come on!
Come on!
Come on, get in!
- Let's go!
- Let's go, Assane.
Come on, Assane. Hit him!
Left, right. Come on.
Okay. Come on.
Okay, that's done.
Let's go.
Left, right, right, right, right, left,
right, right, left, right,
left, left, right, left, right.
You'll be at the exit
and we escape together.
Thank you.
The painting and the pearl,
that's unimportant.
My true goal
My real purpose here
Is to hurt you.
Very bad.
Left, right.
Let's go.
Let's slip them a fake
or find another way.
I can't take the risk.
If I screw up, they'll kill her.
I don't have a choice.
I wish there was another way.
Hands on your head!
I said hands on your head!
Get down!
Guess you're not
as good as your friend, huh?
Come on, move.
Defend yourself! Defend yourself now!
Hit him! Come on!
Come on! Hit him!
The winner
- Hello?
- Good evening.
Oh, you don't sound so good.
- Yeah, I know.
- What's wrong?
The truth is that
Is that?
Is that I lied to you, Claire.
- Are you sure you're all right?
- No. No.
No, no, the truth is
that I was lying to you the other day.
What did you lie to me about?
The other day, I pretended I knew
what's best for Raoul, but I don't.
I have no idea
what it's like to be a dad.
Being a mother means worrying a lot.
Being frustrated.
And usually alone.
I can understand that.
Are you feeling better?
After hearing your voice, yeah.
Thank you.
- I'll let you go.
- It's fine, I was just reading.
Reading what?
I'm too embarrassed to say.
Tell me.
Uh, Lupin.
I'll see you tomorrow?
After practice?
I can't wait, Claire.
See you then.
See you then.
- Hello?
- Claire? It's Catherine.
I searched everywhere,
and we've never had
a Dr. Vernes at the hospital.
Not on December 3rd or ever.
Okay. Thank you.
Of course.
"'With Lupin,
I told you, there is no death.'"
