The plot: Georges Duroy harks from lowly stock and arrives in 1890s Paris with barely two francs to rub together. He is taken under the wing of friend Charles Forestier, who lands the ambitious upstart a position on a newspaper and introduces him to the elegant drawing rooms where his wife Madeleine and her coterie hold court. Georges quickly surmises that if he is to gain a foothold in polite society, he must seduce these women and exploit their influence.

what the others say

Time Out

"This Bel Ami is spirited and sensible but little more than period fluff."


"Even with a strong cast to gild its endless chambers and salons, there's barely a spark of soul to fuel its story."

Total Film

"A good-looking yet curiously tame adaptation of a saucy classic that showcases Pattinson's ambition if not his full abilities."
