Set in 18th century France, this is the story of two bored aristocrats and the havoc they wreak when they play dangerous games with people's lives. The beautiful widow Merteuil challenges rakish Valmont to seduce a virtuous young married woman, never suspecting that he would violate his personal credo and fall in love.

Marquise de Merteuil: Like most intellectuals, he's intensely stupid.

Vicomte de Valmont: I ended by falling on my knees and pledging her eternal love. And do you know that, at that time, and for several hours afterwards, I actually meant it.

Vicomte de Valmont: You see, I have no intention of breaking down her prejudices. I want her to believe in God and virtue and the sanctity of marriage, and still not be able to stop herself. I want the excitement of watching her betray everything that's is most important to her. Surely you understand that. I thought betrayal was your favorite word.
Marquise de Merteuil: No, no..."cruelty." I always think that has a nobler ring to it.

This is my favourite movie of all time. Two bored aristocrats in pre-revolutionary France enjoy toying with other peoples emotions, to sometimes tragic results. Sumptuous sets and costumes, and brilliant acting. Particularly notable is Glenn Close as the amoral Marquise.
