Dangerous Liaisons

This sumptuous movie depicts life among a group of 18th-century French aristocrats.  It is a beautiful film, but the subject matter is the artful, well-mannered wickedness of the two main (and monstrous) characters.  The dialogue is razor-sharp, the intrigue and deceit is complex, and the results are devastating.  It is a movie about power, seduction, revenge and betrayal…and it is delicious.
