   A film by Pavel Longuine

Russian superstar Vladimir Mashkov is formidable in Tycoon, a savvy, fast-paced political thriller about the rise and fall of a new Russian businessman. A box-office smash in Russia, the film offers an inside view of a country in which gangsters and greedy politicians conspire to expand their fortunes and eliminate their enemies. Opening on the day when young billionaire Platon Makovski (Vladimir Mashkov) is murdered, story flashes back to Gorbachev’s Russia in the late 1980s. Five intelligent Russian students abandon their academic careers for the emergent private business sector. As the rules for private enterprise in Russia are barely in place, the young opportunists make their mark – and their millions – from an array of quasi-legal dealings. At 44, leader of the pack Platon finds himself the richest man in Russia and is ruthless in his desire to stay on top. Trouble starts when Russia’s secret servicemen and beyond decide they want a slice of the ever-growing pie…
