Both "Valmont" and "Dangerous Liasons" are fabulous films. I personally prefer "Valmont". The casting for this film is fantastic. Colin Firth makes a much more charming and handsome `Valmont' who knows how to use the 'art of seduction' to his advantage. Annette Benning is a scheming and beautiful `de Merteuil'. The mood of this film is more feel-good than 'Dangerous Liasons'; it contains more playful humour and the imagery (especially in the outdoors) is amazing. With `Dangerous Liasons'; the characters (played by Glenn Close and John Malkovich) were more sinister and less likeable (I guess it depends what mood you're in). Overall: Highly recommended.

This was made at the same time as the peerless and infinitely superior DANGEROUS LIAISONS but its release was delayed on account of the mauling it would have had at the massed artillery of Hampton's et al's masterpiece. Milos Forman who had made the stunning AMADEUS, tries some of his same devices (including scoring by Sir Neville Marriner), a similar proscenium framing, richly-detailed costume and luxurious set-design but there are two fatal flaws in the project as it is presented to us here. The first is the casting: whatever Colin Firth's virtues may be, malice and a savagely wrecked heart are not among them; however plausible Annette Bening may have been to financiers at the time, she is also insufficiently dark, being merely naughty, while the other actors seem to belong to a casting rationale for an altogether lower budget-tier altogether, with the exception of the beautifully-voiced Mme de Tourvel, who is the most memorable performer in what is a mis-firing piece. And that is the problem: the production was so intimidated by its enemy, that it was a chaotic shambles by the time it started shooting. Instead of copying Hampton's take (which it would have been both pointless and illegal to have tried), it strives so hard to re-imagine LaClos' original work as a modern Hollywood take on romantic disappointment (almost heresy to Hollywood in anycase) that it mangles all of the orginal work's excoriating genius. The result is slow, clumsy (Valmont disappears for nearly half an hour and almost the entirety of the Second Act) and only hits its stride at 72 mins in, by which time it is much too late. DANGEROUS LIAISONS, by contrast, has started to conquer, within ten seconds of the opening titles. Even VALMONT's scoring is laughably bad. (Perhaps the budget was cut to meet expectations.) This is a half-hearted knees-up a long way behind the lines of authentic engagement with its subject and its dominating rival.

One of my favourite films and one of Colin Firth's best films along with 'The Hour of The Pig' and 'Pride & Prejudice'. This is a Valmont you can believe seduces for a hobby, being charm personified, who learns too late what love is and ends up hurting himself the most. The gorgeous costumes, outdoor scenes, palacial interiors (including the Chapel Royal) and French courtly dances he performs with the adoring ladies are fascinating. Superb supporting cast. Some witty repartee and comic scenes with his valet interject the 'dangerous liaisons' main storyline and a surprise ending concludes the film in a satisfying way.

This is not a movie cast in terms of 'the american movie product' with all its clichés and star personality enhancements regardless of story lines. This is beautiful ensemble playing of a series of intriguing events through its orchestration by a superb european director. It has the right european feel and the right european contexts - and in spite of the american actors - retains a definite european integrity. Aesthetically it absolutely cannot be faulted - it is a feast for the eyes throughout. I think the final resolution leaves a little to be desired, but the film certainly maintains its integrity to its comic/tragic ending. All the performances are brilliant in their own ways though I have never seen Annette Bening as glitteringly exquisite as in this movie. And if perhaps at first Colin Firth's performance might appear somewhat stolid, it therefore manages all the better to contrive his camouflage as a seriously dangerous seducer.

This is Milos Forman's under-rated film version of 'Les Liaisons Dangereuse', and although it may seem less stylish than the more successful film released at the same time, it has more emotional truth and impact. In particular, Meg Tilly's wonderful portrayal of a woman at once appalled and attracted by a bad man, remains memorable.

Glenn Close versus Annette Benning- Annette brings a softness and mischevious quality to the role, however to believe and accept her ostraciziation as just deserts Glenn Close's viscousness was brilliant. Annette plays a silly woman who uses people and Glenn Close plays a very intelligent, exacting, cruel and lovely predator

Colin Firth versus John Malkovich? I like Colin I think he's really sweet and lovely, and he was more a fop then a calculating driven hunter. Plus his 'prey' in Meg Tilly and that very young girl who plays Cecile she looks thirteen! (Uma looks about sixteen or so at the least, mind u back then as long as the girl was having her period she was considered a woman) are just too easy.

I beleived in Michelle Pfeifer's moral fibre but Meg Tilly is a raving irrational push over.

John Malkovich is strong, seductive and in his own way noble, Colin played a silly young man playing with silly women/girls.

An interesting difference between this movie and Dangerous Liaisons, was this one they spoke french it didn't add much, and young Cecile keeps the baby and we meet her husband to be.

This one could be interesting to watch in how Dangerous Liaisons could have gone wrong, its an allright movie but Dangerous Liaisons is so much better.
