Temptation. Seduction. Obsession.
What it's about:

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.

What the critics thought:

"The women are all elegant and intelligent, they know the ways of the world, and they know Georges' history. Why do they find him attractive? We don't, and that failure is the downfall of the film."
- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times  


"Although this is potentially juicy stuff, it is as dry and tasteless as a shrunken piece of fruit left in the refrigerator far too long."
- Stephen Holden, New York Times


"Pattinson portrays a man who has no moral code and gets to have tons of sex, with various women of smart Parisian society, played by the likes of Uma Thurman, Christina Ricci and Kristen Scott Thomas. Yet mysteriously, the tedium continues. "
- Mary F. Pols, TIME Magazine

It's not exactly lacking in guilty pleasures, but this second trip into Sin City is more self-parody than worthwhile sequel. Read More »
