  • Disappointing-Nothing to do with book' story

    Ok film but the story is not true to the book. The ending has been changed.And Mme Fretier in the book is no Angel. Far from it. Also, the morality of the story is,NOT:" Messing with French women is ok but not with French titles" like I've read somewhere.This is utter stupidity. The book just shows the hypocrisy, cynicism, greed, ambition and intrigues among the Upper Class and its veneered exterior of respectability. George du Roy , seeing all this, decides to "join the club" & becomes ultra cynical & eaten by ambition. At the end of the book, he succeeds and becomes a millionaire, on his way to become a minister in the government. He doesn' t die. He achieves his goal...for now.Very disappointed in this film. I hate it that they had to change the storyline to make it more "PC".Only highlight for me:watching a young Angela Lansbury.

  • Scorcese has helped to preserve this.

    Anything by de Maupassant will be detailed and intriguing, but not too happy. At first I was taken aback by the clean surreal sets created to depict 1890's Paris. Then I was drawn in, by the dreamlike scenarios, by the well-done story of a rogue. Aptly portrayed by George Sanders, Bel Ami is a cool character, but fascinating. I thought Sanders was quite convincing. Angela Lansbury was not at her best, sounding like she was reading a poem as she said her lines.Their wild first date to the wrong side of town, doing a breathtaking dance in a noisy dive--- that was the best part of the movie for me. There he was real, as he was at the very end. Four stars.

    I love this movie and I can't understand why it 's not on DVD. And I can no longer get any VHS that might have it. VHS is now obsolete. I saw in your movie data base that this movie is not avaliable. And I can't understand why. Please see if you can find it somewhere and please show it.

    This is a very well-written, beautifully acted and absorbing. I simply don't understand why it is not available on DVD. I've worn out my VHS copy.
