"Capital" is an ancestor of Karl Marx "Das Kapital"
It is amazing to me that an industry like the film culture consistenly makes films that are anticaptialist. Based on a French novel by Stéphane Osmont, "Capital" is a film directed by Costa Gravas, an international director best known for left of center films like "Missing," "Z" and "State of Seige." The film opens on a golf course in which a bank CEO dies. Marc Tourneuil (Gad Elmaleh) becomes the heir apparent and flies to Fort Lauderdale for a business deal. Upon returning, Marc is given the task of firing his employees to receive a substantial bonus.
