John Malkovich, Glenn Close, Michelle Pfeiffer, Uma Thurman
A sumptuous tale of sex, scandal andintrigue. Faithful to Laclos's 18C novel, Frears and scriptwriter Christopher Hampton succeed sublimely in capturing the mores and ethos of these French aristocrats who live for manipulation and sexual power games. Malkovich is superb as the philanderer Valmont, as is Glenn Close playing the Marquise de Merteuil, with whom he plots the undoing of saintly Madame de Tourvel (Michelle Pfeiffer)

A first-rate piece of work by a director who's daring and agile... It's heaven - alive in a way that movies rarely are
