Suggested MPAA description: Rated 'R' for Sexuality/Nudity, Brief Language, and A Scene of Violence.

Some sexual dialogue throughout.

Valmot walks in on his servant and a maid having sex. The servant flees, taking his bedsheet with him, revealing the maid, fully nude (only breasts and butt are shown). She offers herself to Valmont, but he refuses.

Valmot enters Cecile's bedroom quietly and removes blanket from Cecile's body and traces the outline of her breasts. He then proceeds to wake her up and tries to forcefully kiss her while trying to finger her vagina under her night dress which she resists. He then blackmails her saying that if she shouts and wakes up others, he will tell them that she had invited her as he had the key to her bedroom. When she asks him what does he want, he again tries to put his hands in her vagina which she again resists and gets up. Then he tells her that if she gives him a kiss then he will leave. She consents to this and offers him her face. He forces her on the bed and gets on top of her. He starts kissing her and forcefully enters his tongue in her mouth making hr uncomfortable. He also presses her left breast from the top of her night dress and later enters his hand in her gown and presses her bare breast. After that he refuses to leave saying that as per his condition she did not give him a kiss (He kissed her and not the other way around) and he starts opening her top. Then she reluctantly agrees to kiss him and it is implied that they have sex.

We see Cecile's bare breasts as she undresses for Valmont. He then tells her that he had sex with her mother in the past. He is then seen caressing and kissing her right breast near her areola while both her breasts and erect nipples are visible and it is implied that they had sex.

We see Valmont lying nude, face down on a bed as Cecile writes a letter on his back.

We see Valmont and Madame de Tourvel having sex, but they are only shown from the neck-up with associated kissing/panting.

A man shoots a rifle at a rabbit, but it darts away

Two men are seen dueling with swords outside in the snow with some bloody scrapes on their arms, one of them is eventually stabbed and dies (we see blood running from his mouth).

Brief mild language, words like "Damn" and "Bitch"

In one scene, a man tells a woman he has to break off their affair, which upsets her greatly to the point of hysterics. She is later shown in bed, deceased from a broken heart.
