Robert Pattinson: Bel Ami is One of My Favorite Books/Scripts

Our journalist friend Maria Lindholm (ELLE Sweden) interviewed Robert Pattinson at Cannes Film festival, she's been sharing bits from that interview with us and here's another part where Rob talks about Remember Me and Bel Ami . Maria says he also talked about Unbound captives (not in this clip)and he said he only had two months to prepare for Unbound captives, learning the language etc, and he hoped it would work because he loves that script to.

He really is so happy and excited about Bel Ami. I love how he pays attention to the scripts while choosing the movies he would like to play in.

It's really great to hear his voice.Thanks for posting!!!

I read Bel Ami ages ago, after reading the story 'The Necklace' which I loved. So I figured I would borrow from the library something else by the author. Much went totally over my head, and whatever didn't probably scarred me for life. p-:

Am going to take the plunge (mind your mind there) and read it again....maybe.

Well I really like and admire that he pays attention to the scripts before he picks a movie.

However at this point I can only hope that this project has a good storyline and that it will interest me. Because I have no interest in an immoral character who just sleeps his way to the top, and then what?

There has to be conflict... will he fall in love and change his ways in the end? hence gaining his redemption. Or will he die alone and ask forgiveness on his deathbed, hence the viewer and the character gets to see the error of his ways?

There must be a conflict/a purpose, or else the story will just flounder around aimlessly... I hope that that doesn't happen.

But I will keep the hope that this movie will turn out good...I can't wait to see a trailer (at least then we'll be able to get a feel for the story and the movie)

But the movies I am really looking forward to are Eclipse/Remember Me/Unbound Captives...so far

DM,
In Bel ami, there is struggle and conflict, and not to give anything away, but there is love.

It does have a story line. I read it as a teen, and as I said, much was over my head and out of my experience, but I have it in mind-category with Dorian Grey.

AngelWingsAndStardust said...

Oh thanks Rpattzgirl for the headsup, now I feel better about this movie. I thought it might just be about an unlikable/immoral character who never changes or becomes better...

So you've read the book?

Like I said I am looking forward to the trailer...

AngelWingsAndStardust said...

Oh and thanks Solas as well for the info.

Now I feel tempted to go see if they have it in the library and borrow it out of curiosity...

I wish there was an edit button then I could have just added this to my previous post instead of starting a new one lol.

I`m still reading it, but it is really good so far. There is a lot of internal conflict and struggle. It kinda makes me feel sorry for Duroy...although a lot of it he did to himself.

Geez, how can you NOT love him?

heav85 said...

I'm gonna see if either of our local libraries have this book now. And I love how he said the F word at the end. teehee.

I hesitate to say this because I really think it's better to read an actual book (and don't get me started on kindle), but for those who want the convience, you can read it online.

I am comp illiterate so I don't know how to do a link. I just googled Bel Ami and found it. I had an old copy of it somewhere but with all my moving around, who knows where it is?

And don't worry D.M.
It's very much a morality play. I cannot see someone with Rob's intellect and a nose for tearing down a script and a character, seeking out a one dimensional story.

And it's that nose that's going to serve him well as an actor and a filmmaker (yeah, I think he's going to be one some day). Most do not know how to break down a script and dig down into the layers of a character. Fortunately, Rob's got this figured out. Doesn't mean he won't pick some stinkers now and then. He will. No one can hit a homerun every time at bat.
