Here’s a new good Bel Ami review
From The Filmstage
Based on Guy de Maupassant’s famous 19th century novel of the same name, the story of Bel Ami centers on a young Parisian named Georges Duroy (Robert Pattinson), who has just come back home after a military service in Algeria. Upon returning, he has a chance meeting with his former comrade Charles Forestier (Philip Glenister), who offers him a writing job at a well-respected newspaper. From here, Duroy gains a taste for power, and latches on to it, desperate for more.
Forestier invites him to dinner, and here he is introduced to three sophisticated women. They are Madeleine Forestier (Uma Thurman), Madame Walter (Kristin Scott Thomas), and Clotilde de Marelle (Christina Ricci). Each of these ladies are very different from each other, but Duroy seduces them all with his boyish charm, using them for his own gain. He eventually makes his mark even on the powerful newspaper editor, Rousset (Colm Meaney), becoming an integral part of the boss’s circle.

“I’m afraid,” confesses Robert Pattinson.
“Fear for an actor is always a good thing. He’s also a fantastic, stunning, a great performer” responds indirectly David Cronenberg. “The script was crazy and difficult,” the actor continues. “When I heard that the person was him, I had an intuition. I know that Robert is a grand leap” echoes the director.
Distance dialogue between the student and teacher, working for months on the set of their first project together, for the big screen adaptation of Cosmopolis, the surreal novel by Don DeLillo.
“In the year 2000, one day in April” Thus begins the odyssey, a long 24 hours, Eric Parker, 28 year-old multimillionaire who left home with his white limousine to go to the barber, remains locked in the traffic of Manhattan and is involved in a series of events that jeopardize his safety and his heritage … It would be impossible to describe in a few lines the surreal journey the protagonist takes in a Manhattan without frontiers, a sort of virtual town where the limo floats like a social network and chat with other “traces” of humanity. Between tasers, pie in the face, the threat of someone wanting to kill him (both as a person and as a symbol of humanity no longer in the horizon) and the presence of his mysterious life companion, ethereal woman, guardian angel and his wife constantly betrayed.
After Crash, Cronenberg continues his exploration of the imaginary modern metropolitan, hallucinated and perverse, using a cast which also includes Paul Giamatti, Juliette Binoche and Mathieu Amalric
WHY YOU SHOULD NOT MISS IT: To observe the modern world through Cronenberg’s look. And it could be Pattinson’s professional ‘redemption’.
