  • Based on the infamous novel LES LIASONS DANGEREUSES by Choderlos de Laclos and the subsequent Christopher Hampton play, set in pre-revolutionary France, a cunning Marquise (Glenn Close) and a seductive Vicomte (John Malkovich) mastermind a cruel and complicated game of romantic manipulation. Set against the backdrop of high-society baroque boudoirs, filled with deceitful lovers and cunning sexual gamesmanship, the Marquise and the Vicomte agree to a competition involving a virginal young bride (Uma Thurman) and a faithful wife (Michele Pfieffer). When the Vicomte successfully seduces the virtous and faithful wife they unexpectantly fall in love, breaking the rules of the inhuman Marquise's clever parlor game with vengeful results.

  • Critic Reviews
    "...Pfeiffer reveals an emotional nakednes that's almost shocking....The payoff more than warrants the dare..." -- Rating: A
    Entertainment Weekly

    "...Witty, entertaining, if occasionally overripe, decadence....[Nothing Close] has done on the screen before approaches the richness and comic delicacy of her work as the Marquise..."
    New York Times

    "...In addition to its photography, the film's details of costuming and production design are ravishing. Hampton and Frears have also employed a lovely flowing series of flashbacks throughout..."
    Los Angeles Times

    "Malkovich is great fun to watch....The movie itself is a career high point for all involved..."
