Synopsis

“We are slaves to capital. We shake when it gets shaky. We rejoice when it grows and triumphs. Who will set us free? Should we liberate ourselves? At the very least we should know those who serve it and how.” (Costa-Gavras) When the CEO of France’s Phenix Bank collapses on the golf course, Machiavellian young executive Marc Tourneuil is crowned as his replacement. A whirlwind of ruthless ambition, power struggles, greed and deception ensues as Tourneuil’s brutal ascent is jeopardized by a hostile takeover attempt from a large American hedge fund, erotic distractions from an international supermodel, and adversaries with an agenda for destruction. “Le Capital” is a pointed commentary on how the Darwinian world of contemporary capitalism plays itself out across the global financial stage.” (Cohen Media Group)
