Story


"Bel Ami", based on the short story by Guy de Maupassant, is an erotically charged tale of ambition, power and seduction which chronicles the rise of Georges Duroy from poverty into the 'beau monde' of 1890's Paris.

Using his wits and powers of seduction, Duroy moves from a prostitute's embrace to passionate trysts with wealthy beauties who inhabit where sex is power and celebrity an obsession, and where politics and media jostle for influence.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..the film’s extremely professional and a little hesitant, and it leans much too hard on a swooning score by Rachel Portman and Lakshman Joseph de Saram..”
by Ty Burr [Boston Globe]
“..they are wealthy (or aspire to wealth), they are ambitious, they are beautiful, and they are a dreadful bore..”
by Steven Rea [Philadelphia Inquirer]
“..the tone of the film sometimes feels overly arch and dry..”
by Andrew O'Hehir [Salon.com]
