Bel Ami

April 29, 2012

Bel Ami (2012) – 19th century French costumes and manners, adapting to wealth, despising poverty, rising to the top – a movie about flattery, sex, power, politics and ruthlessness. Can’t remember having read Guy de Maupassant’ novel and unlikely to do so. Good and credible acting.
