Excellent movie. I love Glenn Close in this movie. It's kinda like cruel intentions but the old version. It's kind of like a soap opera. Beautiful costumes.

This is a fantastic story of deception, corruption and destruction. Set in 18th century France, Close and Malkovich are two French Aristocrats who live to destroy the lives of others, purely for the sport. There have been other movies made that follow this same plot line (for example, Cruel Intentions) but this film is done exceptionally well with some high-caliber acting (and some non-so-high-caliber acting -- Keanu Reeves). Quite disturbing and well worth a look.

This is pretty messed up. It was beautifully done and has an excellent cast.

"Lust. Seduction. Revenge. The Game As You've Never Seen It Played Before." One of my favourite costume movies. This is based on a novel. I love Glenn Close in this one because she plays a scheming widow.

"Dangerous Liaisons" by Yojimbo

Manipulative aristocrats John Malkovich and Glenn Close engage in sexual conquest and gender warfare beneath the outward formality and respectability of 18th century France. Valmont was the part that propelled Malkovich into the big leagues and is the part he was born to play. He treads the line perfectly between caddishness and charm as he seduces and beds every woman he encounters for the thrill of the chase, and shows great skill and subtlety in making such a despicable and morally weak character sympathetic toward the end of the film. All the best scenes are of course concerned with the verbal sparring between Valmont and the bitter and calculating Marquise played with equal skill by Close, but Michelle Pfeiffer's sensitive performance and porcelain beauty also paint a believable pict...
