The story of Georges Duroy, who 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.

- Quick review:
- Robert Pattinson forgoes his pasty “Twilight” complexion to essay the role of Georges Duroy, a shallow hustler in late 19th century Paris, in this laughably bad adaptation of a Guy de Maupassant novel. With Christina Ricci, Kristin Scott Thomas and Uma Thurman as the women under his spell.
