Deceit is a dangerous strategy

Amidst the smoky and chic world of 1950s Parisian elite, Roger Vadim (And God Created Woman, Barbarella) recreates Choderlos de Laclos's scathing 18th-century novel of bedroom secrets and casual cruelties.

Jeanne Moreau (Jules & Jim, La Notte) and Gerard Philipe (La Ronde, Beauty and the Beast) star as Juliette and Valmont, two charming and vindictive spouses who find sport in each other's extramarital conquests. But while staying at a ski resort, their games of passion come to a tragic end when Valmont falls in love with a pious socialite earmarked to be his next victim.

Banned in some parts of France during its initial release, Les Liaisons Dangereuses co-stars Jean-Louis Trintignant (Red, Z) and features a jazz-infused score by Thelonious Monk.
