Consummate stage and screen actor, and member of the prestigious Comédie-Française, Laurent Lafitte brings controversial French businessman Bernard Tapie to delectable life in this seven-part highly-fictionalized biopic miniseries, recounting a blow-by-blow account of a colorful tycoon’s rise and fall. The relentlessly ambitious son of a plumber, Tapie’s enormous drive ultimately leads him to amass a fortune through numerous business interests, own a Tour de France cycling team and a major French football club, enter politics, become a successful actor and television personality, and hold a major stake in Adidas… before being convicted of tax fraud and serving time in prison. Despite the heavy measure of fiction, which led Tapie’s widow to decry the series, the result is a diverting rags-to-riches tale of an infamous figure brimming with charm, smarm and a heaping dose of chutzpah.
