Miyazaki’s cinematic debut is released. Based on the Lupin the 3rd TV show, Lupin the III: The Castle Of Cagliostro follows the adventures of the title character as he entangles himself in the affairs of the Duke Of Cagliostro.
So inside the castle I set myself a rule: always try to make the same space come up twice. If the character goes there once, then the character will go back to the same place again. It was like a game, and that was how I created the setting: “Here’s two lakes, a castle, there’s a Roman aqueduct…” And then I thought, “Yes, now I can make a film on this!” I just wish that I could have done it much, much better!
