McMafia 2018 BBC Tv Show Series Trailer Poster Impelreport
The new and splendid series of the BBC, McMafia , on the oligarchs and organized crime in Russia, offers the viewer many exciting moments. Who could have imagined that a caviar knife could be so lethal? Or that the assassins could reach the counties of East and Southeast England and dirty the elegant furniture with a bloody message from Moscow?
The most purest Russian connoisseurs have expressed some reservations. Would Alex Godman, educated in the United Kingdom and the son of a Russian mobster, played by James Norton, talk to his father in English and without a hint of an accent? And where are the bodyguards? After all, they are part of the day-to-day life of any businessman in Moscow who boasts, and yet his absence is remarkable in situations where the intervention of a tough guy would be necessary.
Despite these details, the underlying ideas, which are based on a non-fiction book written by journalist Misha Glenny, describe a reality. Organized crime organizations can still move large amounts of money around the world, thanks to a banking and financial system that allows them to hide behind an anonymous business network and asks few questions.
