Description: 
In the final days before the French Revolution, Paris is already burning in the chateaus ­ and bedrooms ­ of the aristocracy. Les Liaisons Dangereuses centers around the seductions of two former lovers, Merteuil and Valmont, and the victims they manipulate for pleasure and amusement. As the rivals challenge each other to a high­-stakes battle of one­-upmanship, morality and fidelity are caught in the crossfire. The ultimate tale of love as war, Les Liaisons Dangereuses is a wickedly sexy mediation on jealousy, the breakdown of opulence, and the costs of passion. And when revenge is served cold… the whole affair is bound to end dangerously.
