New Delhi, Feb 23 (IANS) Robert Pattinson and Uma Thurman-starrer “Bel Ami” will hit the theatres in India March 16.
The English language movie, based on an 1885 novel of the same name, is the story of Georges Duroy who travels through 1890s Paris and uses his wit and power of seduction to rise from poverty to wealth in a world where politics and media jostle for influence, where sex is power and celebrity an obsession.
“Bel Ami”, directed by Declan Donnellan and Nick Ormerod, will be distributed in India by PVR Pictures.
Here’s a new Bel Ami review by Eye For Film
For Guy de Maupassant’s classic novel, there couldn’t be a more timely point at which to arrive on the big screen. With its themes of political and journalistic corruption and the prospect of an unpopular foreign war, it’s as relevant now as it ever was, and in many ways it functions as a picture of transition between the oft-romanticised 18th century and the brutal modern age.
For many, of course, the main reason to see this will be star Robert Pattinson. He certainly doesn’t disappoint, but largely because he knows how to play an unlikeable character well, and it’s anyone’s guess how fans will react to that. He’s often shirtless, of course, because all young Georges – the bel ami of the title – has to sell when he arrives in Paris is his body. But Georges isn’t looking to scrape a living on the streets. The other thing he possesses is ambition. By seducing rich women, he fancies he might find a means of manipulating rich men and climbing up the social ladder.
‘Bel Ami’ directors, Declan Donnellan and Nick Ormerod, were at the movies’ screening at the Glasgow Film Festival. They talked a little about Bel Ami and Rob (at 2:00).
