Bel Ami is one of the most anticipated films this year. Fans of the well known author, Maupassant would like to see the novel in the big screen and how the directors and actors translated it. Although, not everyone is excited about the portrayal of Robert Pattinson in the movie Bel Ami. Here’s a short quote from a critic from belamifilm.com: But Pattinson himself is a problem as Duroy. He displays the character’s ruthlessness adequately and his wolfish smile is a useful weapon in his regard. But he seems ill-at-ease in terms of playing a period role.
Still, there are still a lot of people who want to see this film as it arrives to theaters worldwide on March 2nd 2012 and according to Hollywood Life “I think Rob did a very good job, he plays angry and frustrated very well. He wasn’t very likeable, which was how it’s supposed to be, if I understand what the book is about.”
