The film which also stars Philip Glenister and Holliday Grainger was shot on locations in and around London and Budapest during an eleven week shoot. Shooting wrapped on April 22nd.

Directed by Declan Donnellan and Nick Ormerod, the film is an erotically charged story of ambition, power and seduction. Georges Duroy (Robert Pattinson), travels through 1890s Paris, from cockroach ridden garrets to opulent salons, using his wits and powers of seduction to rise from poverty to wealth, from a prostitute’s embrace to passionate trysts with wealthy beauties, in a world where politics and media jostle for influence, where sex is power and celebrity an obsession.

Uma Thurman (Kill Bill) is Madeleine, Kristin Scott Thomas (Nowhere Boy) is Virginie, Christina Ricci (Monster) is Clotilde, Colm Meaney (The Damned United) is Rousset, Philip Glenister (Life on Mars) is Charles and Holliday Grainger (Scouting Book for Boys) is Suzanne.

The screenplay is by Rachel Bennette from the novel by Guy de Maupassant. Uberto Pasolini (The Full Monty) is the Producer and Simon Fuller is Executive Producer. The Director of Photography is Stefano Falivene (Carmel); Attila F. Kovacs (Sunshine) is Production Designer; Costumes are designed by Odile Dicks-Mireaux (An Education); Hair and Make-up is by Jenny Shircore (The Young Victoria) and the Editor is Masahiro Hirakubo (The Duchess).

BEL AMI is a Redwave Films production in association with Simon Fuller’s new company XIX, Protagonist Pictures and RaiCinema.

Protagonist Pictures are handling international sales on the film. RaiCinema will handle the film in Italy. Studio Canal have rights for their three territories: Optimum Releasing in the UK, Kinowelt in Germany and their own Studio Canal label in France. Elsewhere, Protagonist have completed deals with Hopscotch for Australia, Independent for Benelux, Impuls for Switzerland, Golden Scene for Hong Kong/Macau, Unikorea Culture and Art for South Korea, Central Partnership for CIS, Ablo for Eastern Europe, California Filmes for Latin America, PT Camila for Indonesia and Hollywood Entertainment for Greece and Cyprus.

      You’re right – it doesn’t say anything about handling the USA release. Surely they don’t think it’s assumed? We assume nothing!

    Love the photos – saw them on another site but will come here first from now on since you are the “official Bel Ami site” and doing such a good job I might add! I think the Details shoot picture of Rob with the spread legs shot was a precursor for this photo just to get us warmed up … sigh, mind goes to dirty place

  • If I had a greenback for each time I came here… Superb writing.
