Bel Ami

Bel-Ami is a film directed by Declan Donnellan and Nick Ormerod and released in 2012. It is the ninth adaptation of the novel by Guy de Maupassant "Bel Ami"

Georges Duroy, ambitious young man and seductive, arrives in Paris driven by the desire to become a wealthy and influential personality. He will climb the social ladder as fast as his journalism career takes off. But how far is he willing to go to increase its ascent?

More than a century after the publication of the novel, the themes of Bel-Ami written by Maupassant are always a hot topic. For me the adaptation is too respectful ! However, Robert Pattinson offers us a very convincing as Georges Duroy because he is attractive! Too bad that the film has failed to show the great modernity of the novel.
