Description Based on the novel by Choderlos de Laclos. Les Liaisons Dangereuses tells of the sexual intrigues of the nobility in the years before the French Revolution. For the Marquise de Merteuil and the Vicomte de Valmont seduction is a game that has no rules and you play to win. She wants the Vicomte's help to humiliate an old lover, but he is preoccupied with another game: to win over the most respectable woman in France. As the two schemes entwine, an unexpected and dangerous element comes into play: love.
