Some scenes will be familiar in the 2:05 clip, which includes an introduction by a Russian-speaking comentator. But there are some juicy scenes that haven’t been shown yet in the United States.
No dialogue is necessary to watch Rob interact with other cast members as George Duroy, the scandalous protagonist in the film. He overflows with lust, desire and ambition. Arriving in Paris as a “penniless” ex-soldier, Duroy is determined to find his place in French society by seducing the wives of powerful men.

The clip opens with a shot of Rob with Christina Ricci, who plays Clotilde de Marelle. Her husband is away for long periods of time, and she becomes Duroy’s lover. It’s a touching scene. Rob looks on as Christina plays with one of her children.
It gives a brief glimpse of the casting longing looks at each other, which foreshadows their hot love scene near the end of the clip. There are some great shots of Uma Thurman who plays Madeleine Forestier, the wife of
Duroy’s old comrade Charles Forestier (Philip Glenister).
There’s also some interesting behind-the-scenes footage.
Holliday Grainger, a UK actress, talk with Access Hollywood about working with Rob in one of his early films, 2007’s The Bad Mother’s Handbook.” She also stars as one of Rob’s lovers in “Bel Ami.”
“I don’t think he’s any different,” she says. “I worked with him pre-Twilight as well. And, him as a person, to work with him, I couldn’t see the difference, which I think is kind of a credit to his managing to stay down to earth.
She said Rob was surrounded by “massive chaos” because of hundreds of fans trying to get a glimpse of him while they were shooting mainly in Budapest. “Hundreds of fans were outside, all the time,” she says. “It was pretty constant.”
