Dutch Review Bel Ami

Since Bel Ami is premiering tomorrow in the Netherlands there are some reviews coming out. Here’s a great one from We just translated the few parts that mention Rob, read the entire review (in Dutch) HERE:

One thing is certain: Robert Pattinson, the teen idol that got famous by his part as romantic vampire in the Twilight Saga, is getting a lot more ‘action’ in his latest movie.

Good casting

Declan Donnellan and Nick Ormerod tell the story [of Bel Ami] in a solid way and have a great cast at their disposal. They’re not using it all to their full capacity, are somewhat too explanatory and have a bit much music, but for the rest there’s nothing really wrong with what they did.

And Pattinson is a good casting for the part of Duroy. He’s a pretty guy, we knew that already, but in Bel Ami he proves that he’s really capable of acting. Charme, sneaky, lust for power and resentment, all combined in one persona: Pattinson makes Bel Ami to be an intriguing presonage.

Bel Ami Review by The Filmstage

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.

The Hunger Games Movie: Our Review

If you’re a part of the Twilight fandom as we are, you’ve no doubt heard people/blogs referring to The Huger Games as the next ‘Twilight’. Usually followed by the typical ‘Character v Character’ battles, and the ever popular ‘Who’d Win In A Fight?’

Frankly, you cant get away from it. “Why is everyone comparing them???” you ask, “They’re two totally different things!”

I screamed and jumped at the chance to go to a screening. I decided to check it out.

Bel Ami review by Impact

From Impact
A plotless tale of Parisian adultery, debut directors Declan Donnellan and Nick Ormerod’s adaptation of Guy de Maupassant’s classic novel Bel Ami certainly boasts some fine performances, but leaves us with nothing else.
It is 1890 and ex-cavalry officer Georges Duroy (Robert Pattinson) arrives in Paris having completed three years military service in Algeria, looking for a well-paid job. On one of his frequent visits to a Parisian brothel he meets former comrade Forester, and with the phrase ‘come and meet my wife’, Duroy begins to ascend the social ladder, landing himself a job at Forester’s newspaper ‘La Vie Francais’. The wife Madeleine (Uma Thurman) and her two friends Clotilde (Christina Ricci) and Virginie (Kristin Scott Thomas) fall for Georges immediately and take him under their wings as their ‘Bel Ami’.

Great New Bel Ami Review by Radio Times

From Radio Times

It’s pretty daring to take Robert Pattinson, the most fanciable young actor of his generation, and cast him alongside actresses of the calibre of Kristin Scott Thomas, Uma Thurman and Christina Ricci. But it’s a risk that pays off here as his performance takes this retelling of Guy de Maupassant’s tale of sex and ambition to another level. As thrilling as it is sumptuous, the first feature from theatre directors Declan Donnellan and Nick Ormerod brings Paris at the turn of the 20th century to vibrant life, as handsome, brutish social climber Georges Duroy (Pattinson) plunders and blunders his way around the women of powerful men. The stunning production design frames Duroy’s amorality as it unfolds like a rotten flower, and Pattinson has never looked more irresistible or dangerous. Thurman, especially, is a revelation – literally finding a new quality to her voice as the influential and wealthy Madeleine Forestier. A hauntingly beautiful triumph of content over style, this isDangerous Liaisons meets Cruel Intentions with extra added credibility.

4/5 stars 
Theatrical distributor:Optimum Releasing
Guidance: Swearing, sex scenes, nudity.

Video: Bel Ami & Robert Pattinson Featured on BBC Film 2012 + Review

1. First part of the feature in better quality, and if you don’t want to watch the review. (click 720p HD)


2. Full video. Review at 2.45. The woman is pretty tough on the script and character, the guy is more complimentary about Rob. (remember, reviews are just personal opinions, go see it and decide for yourself.)

‘Bel Ami’ review: Robert Pattinson romps through Paris

From DigitalSpy:

The year is 1890 and a young soldier, Georges Duroy, returns to France from the battlefields of Algeria. He’s played by Twilight‘s Robert Pattinson, who revels in the opportunity to shed his pin-up image and embark on a bonk-a-thon through the Parisian elite.

Pattinson’s most famous screen character Edward Cullen may sustain himself on blood, but there’s something equally vampiric about his portrayal of Duroy – a man with cold, darting eyes whose unquenchable thirst is for power and status. Driven by a life in poverty, Duroy’s chance encounter with old army colleague Charles Forestier (Philip Glenister) leads him into higher social circles and a job as a newspaper writer (despite being barely literate).

Robert Pattinson and Bel Ami in Flair magazine – Belgium

Here are scans of the positive Bel Ami review in Flair Magazine. Thanks to Robert Pattinson Belgium for these:

New Bel Ami Review from ‘What’s on Stage’

A great Bel Ami review from 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.

Bel Ami one of ‘must watch march movies’ from Digitalspy

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:

Bel Ami

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.
