Film: Bel Ami; Cast: Robert Pattinson, Uma Thurman,Kristin Scott; Directors: Declan Donnellan and Nick Ormerod; Rating: ****
It is hard to imagine a time in thewestern world where the only difference between a slave and a woman was that women were permitted a little more dignity byallowing them to dress up (to serve men) and mingle with them at least in parties.
Perhaps it is not so difficultto imagine women as second class citizens, because the discrimination against women even in the western world - albeit in adifferent form - continues to date.
And though the prism of feminism is not the obvious way to look at this taleof a man from a lowly background rising up the ladder of a corrupt society with his own corruption, the feminist angle isindeed how the makers want you to look at the film.
