A great Bel Ami review from Whatsonstage.com. Here’s an excerpt:
Bel Ami is a sumptuous transposition to the screen (by no means the first) of Guy de Maupassant’s fin de siecle Parisian novel starring Robert Pattinson as Georges Duroy, the dissolute French soldier who rises to the top of society and journalism by the simple expedient of sleeping with the wives of his employers.
It’s a deeply sour tale of having your cake and eating it, and it’s beautifully played and sumptuously costumed. And you can’t fail to notice in these rocky days for newspaper ethics, that Georges moves sideways from his diary of a cavalryman in the Algerian war to head of gossip on the broadsheet; he draws a line, though, at taking his share of the profits when war-mongering becomes a sort of insider trading.
As a debut movie, and made for the comparative pittance of nine million euros, it’s almost indecently good and highly accomplished. And although Pattinson twitches his nostrils a little too often, he’s spot on as the louche lothario.

5 must-watch March movies: Bel Ami, John Carter, Hunger Games and more
If you’re expecting a leisurely month for movies in March then think again, because the next 31 days are packed full of exciting treats for cinema fans. Twilight’s Robert Pattinson will get down and dirty for the sex-stuffed Bel Ami, while spring will hold a mini-blockbuster season of its own with the debut of Disney’s sci-fi epic John Carter and the eagerly-awaited action film The Hunger Games.
Digital Spy previews five must-see movies for March below:
Release Date: March 9
Why you should see it: Robert Pattinson may not have been the most prolific cinematic bed-hopper as Twilight’s chaste vampire Edward Cullen, but that all changes in this steamy adaptation of Guy de Maupassant’s French novel. R-Patz plays a young man who climbs the Parisian social ladder by sleeping with Christina Ricci, Uma Thurman and Kristen Scott Thomas.
