A stylish, slick crime drama based on the life of notorious billionaire Boris Berezovsky, TYCOON follows the life of Plato Makovski ,a renegade Russian entrepeneur whose seductive and brutal climb to the top in the post-Soviet era flourishes as the line between business, crime and politics breaks down.
Opening with Plato’s assassination by car bomb, An investigation Judge of his life through flashbacks involving a vivid array of gangsters, mistresses, childhood friends, idealistic intellectuals, and trigger-happy veterans, offers an inside view of a country in which gangsters and greedy politicians conspire to rub out their enemies.
Building a media empire, Plato uses his genius to become a monster, unhesitatingly sacrificing his ideals and his closest friends until he topples.
Compared by critics to SCARFACE and THE GODFATHER SAGA, TYCOON is an epic tale of a visionary and scoundrel, and, in the end, a bridge between the old Russia and the new.
