Temptation and obsession sweep turn of the century Paris in Bel Ami, the sizzling sexual drama that steams its way onto Blu-ray and DVD from 23rd July 2012 courtesy of StudioCanal.
Bel Ami tells the story of down-on-his-luck Georges Duroy, who travels through 1890s Paris, from its cockroach ridden garrets to its opulent salons, using his wits and powers of seduction to rise from poverty to wealth. Introduced into higher society by a former comrade at arms, Duroy becomes the talk of the town as he captivates and manipulates some of Paris' most powerful women, blinding them with deceit, distraction or debauchery whilst trying to prevent his sordid house of cards from falling apart.
Heart throb du jour Robert Pattinson (The Twilight Saga, Water For Elephants) takes on a role with real bite as the manipulative Duroy. He's joined by Christina Ricci (The Opposite Of Sex, Monster), Uma Thurman (The Accidental Husband, Kill Bill Vols. 1 & 2), Kristin Scott-Thomas (Salmon Fishing In The Yemen, Easy Virtue) and Colm Meaney (The Damned United, Law Abiding Citizen), in what is the sexiest drama of the year, combining period splendour with complex sexual politics and easily the most attractive cast of 2012.
