A Russian mobster at the brink of death looks back on his life of crime in this "breathlessly paced thriller" (Jan Stuart, Newsday), loosely based on the life of corrupt Russian businessman Boris Berezovsky. Jumping backwards and forwards in time, Tycoon follows the suave and self-assured Platon (Vladimir Mashkov) as he uses his charm and government connections to rise through the Russian mob, which has taken full advantage of Russia's new capitalist system. Simultaneously, a police detective investigates Platon's murder. In Russian with English subtitles.
