| Feedback on seeing Bel Ami
The storyline and setting for the book is well known, but this film focuses on the main character's development into a ruthless and determined man who will stop at nothing to ensure he does not return to his previous life of poverty and hardship. Robert Pattinson's interpretation is entirely rational and believable.

At the start of the film we see Georges hungry living in conditions that would lead anyone to become desperate. He sees the rich squandering their wealth and when a turn of fate allows him to enter this world he grabs it and initially cannot believe his good luck. However the men who made him decide they no longer want to support him leading him to take his revenge. He has learnt that everyone in these circles is flawed and are willing to take risks in order to get what they want, so he feels that he can do the same.

Robert Pattinson demonstrates that he has grown as an actor and is building on his previous roles.

Go and see this film you will not be disappointed.
