‘Dangerous Liaisons’ Movie Summary

Happy 30th this version of DANGEROUS LIAISONS at the time of recording…

Bedrooms and Hallways. Gardens and Castles. Love and Revenge. Acknowledged suitors, unacknowledged suitors, anatomy, deceit, surrender, jealousy, distraction and sex are timeless threads through this Oscar winner.

For her own absorbed amusement wealthy widow Marquise de Merteuil (the magnificent Glenn Close) uses her natural predatory instincts challenging notorious womaniser Vicomte de Valmont (John Malkovich) to seduce naive young newlywed Madame de Tourvel (Michelle Pfeiffer) while also set a task of performing erotic education with a teenage daughter of a former fling Cecile de Volanges (Uma Thurman) before the tender innocent is married off.

    1. So I watched Valmont on TCM. It’s good, but lighter than Dangerous. Has a different ending, Dangerous was more faithful to the source material. Firth and Bening were very good, but Meg Tilly can’t compare to Michelle Pfeiffer.
