  • Excerpt: Guy de Maupassant’s novel Bel Ami has been adapted for the stage and screen multiple times—most memorably in 1947, in a movie starring George Sanders and Angela Lansbury. The novel’s appeal is obvious: It explores the social strata of 19th-century Paris by showing an ambitious scoundrel hopping from bed to bed.

  • Summary: There are few stories I relish as much as those that centre around some sort of societal ascension. There's something quite delicious about watching a character weave around his or her class status to infiltrate a rarefied arena, only to inevitably become a victim of its corruptive influence. More So I was naturally excited to see this film, based on one of the few novels by that French master of the sardonic short story, Guy De Maupassant.

  • Conclusion: Even with a strong cast to gild its endless chambers and salons, there's barely a spark of soul to fuel its story. Pattinson is no Malkovich either.

  • Summary: Beautiful but muddled re-do of Guy de Maupassant’s classic French novel.
