THE 1001 LIVES OF BERNARD TAPIE | LCP |
At the age of 78, Bernard Tapie has lost his last battle. And yet this businessman won practically everything throughout his life: businessman, star presenter, owner of Olympique Marseilles football club… the world smiled upon him… until the day he went into politics. “The Thousand and One Lives of Bernard Tapie” retraces the fantastic, gripping career of this wealthy and seductive man whose life turned upside down the day he decided to move into government. From the very moment he was appointed minister, there was an explosion of financial-political scandals, enquiry followed enquiry, culminating in downfall and prison. Why did he meet with such disappointment? Did he abuse power? Or was he taken down by opponents because he was becoming too embarrassing? How did he manage to be “reborn” after a long journey through the desert?
