IndieWire has Bel Ami listed as one of its Top 10 films to see at Berlinale next week. They write:
Bel Ami (Declan Donnellan, Nick Ormerod, UK)
Not to the be confused with the brand of Eastern European gay porn, “Bel Ami” instead stars Robert Pattinson in another attempt to move beyond his “Twilight” fame. The period film adapted from the book by Guy de Maupassant follows a young man’s rise to power in Paris via his manipulation of the city’s most powerful women (Uma Thurman, Kristin Scott Thomas, Christina Ricci). Perhaps the most star-studded offering at the fest, it could be (campy?) fun.
LMAO at the gay porn connection!
