Synopsis

Many Europeans have dreamed of a film studio able to challenge Hollywood on its own ground. Only one post-war company has come close - PolyGram Filmed Entertainment. This title is an account of the life and death of PolyGram Films seen through the eyes of its British President, Michael Kuhn. He describes the beginnings of the company, in London and LA, in the heyday of the 80s and its subsequent meteoric growth throughout the next decade. Combining critical acclaim and popular success with such films as "Wild at Heart", "Four Weddings and a Funeral", "Fargo" and "Notting Hill", PolyGram Films garnered ten Oscars from 1991 until 1998, when its potential was unexpectedly and unaccountably destroyed. This is not only a story of deals won and lost in a ruthless world peopled by titans, sharks, peacocks and all the usual suspects, but a real business adventure that changed the structure of the global film industry.
