“Bel Ami” Fan Review by @vampirefreak101 SPOILERS!

Warning! Spoilers!

my Bel Ami review :) *spoilers*

LOVED it.

I’d read a few bad reviews and honestly was feeling apprehensive, but was pleasantly surprised as how good it was.

Robs acting is very good. He plays Georges very well. And he is in almost every scene.

Obviously this was filmed 2 years ago and i’ve noticed in the Twilight films that his acting has slowly improved. (So Cosmopolis should be brilliant!)
There are a few scenes with the lead actresses where their acting careers show, but Rob is getting better and better.

Rob is not always going to be ‘gorgeous Rob’ in every film and I was glad that there were some scenes where Georges is tired, desperate and battered. This helps to highlight Robs acting and not just his looks.

I loved every scene that Christina Ricci was in.

The sex scenes..well the scenes are very short and to be honest, although they convey Georges character and are important plot points, they’re not pivotal scenes. They’re snapshots. The longest scene, with Uma, is not sexy at all and is actually uncomfortable to watch. The scenes with Christina showing the passage of time is really well done.

The scene when Georges sits down at the table with all 3 of his conquests is hilarious. The smirk on his face is just perfect.

The directors of Bel Ami are theatre directors, and it shows, in a good way. Instead of feeling immersed in the story, you feel like you are merely an observer. This works really well for the context of the book/story.

I haven’t read the book in a while so I can’t compare the book to the film in exact detail, but the film definitely conveys the time period and Georges character brilliantly. The interwoven deceit of ‘everyone out for themselves’ mentality is spot on.

Well done to everyone involved in the making of Bel Ami !

p.s Rob playing ‘ball and cup’ = <3

Thank you @vampirefreak101!
