another version of a literary classic...
26 August 2008 | by (France) – See all my reviews

another version of Dangerous liaisons, that Vadim had already filmed in 1959. This one takes place during the 19th century, and Sylvia Krystel, the star of Emmanuelle,does not get naked a lot in it. I remember Nathalie Delon was pretty good in it, playing the Merteuil part. The locations looked great and the look of the film is very good, as always in Vadim movies. I'm not sure a second viewing would be a great experience though, as Krystel was not such a great actress. And the Frears and Forman's were so good, and the teen version interesting too. It's kind of difficult to catch it nowadays : I saw it on French TV quite a while ago.
