French filmmaker Josée Dayan directs the erotic drama Les Liaisons Dangereuses, based on the 18th century novel by Choderlos de Laclos and updated by screenwriter Eric-Emmanuel Schmitt. A co-production of France and Canada, this French-language television miniseries is reimagined with a swinging '60s setting. Madame de Mertueil (Catherine Deneuve) and Vicomte de Valmont (Rupert Everett) are a couple of wealthy and seductive aristocrats. Advancing in years, Mertueil grows jealous when she learns that her old flame Gercourt (Andrzej Zulawski) is planning to marry the much younger Cécile Volanges (Leelee Sobieski). The bored rich couple plot a scheme to have Valmont seduce Cécile before the wedding. Valmont also goes to visit Rosemonde (Danielle Darrieux) in Saint Tropez, where he meets the married woman Marie Tourvel (Nastassja Kinski). Featuring a musical score by Angelo Badalamenti and period costumes by Jean-Paul Gaultier. Les Liaisons Dangereuses premiered on U.S. television on WE: Women's Entertainment in March 2004. ~ Andrea LeVasseur, Rovi

This movie is a drama B flick! If you want to see a great movie, see the original Dangerous Liasons with Glenn Close, John Malkovich and Michelle Pfieffer. This remake doesn't hold a candle to the original. Please, take my advice and don't waste your time. I tried to watch it till the end but I kept falling asleep. The dialogue is pathetic.
I've never seen such awful dubbing and was so bored I repeatedly found myself staring at the people's lips trying to figure out the French words.
After about an hour and a half of this over 3 hour movie I quit!
complete waste of time. i don't understand those who think that this text can be directly translated into modern time. totally agree with the comment that frear's movie is million times better. in addition, deneuve is just horrible in her role but that does not add / subtract anything to the hopelessness of this picture.
