Let’s take a look at what this famous old story is all about.
Les Liaisons dangereuses – Synopsis
Les Liaisons dangereuses is the story of two ex-lovers who plot to destroy the repute of an innocent young aristocrat. The two rivals use sex as a weapon of degradation and humiliation and enjoy the sadistic games they play. And to make matters even more intense, their targets for this “fun” are the highly virtuous married woman and a young girl who falls in love with her music tutor. But as this dangerous game of seduction and manipulation becomes more intensely detailed, the two soon realize that they are in deeper waters than what they initially planned on. Their last encounter might actually turn out to be potentially their most dangerous liaison by far.
