1989. USA. Directed by Milos Forman. Screenplay by Forman, Jean-Claude Carrière, based on the novel Les Liaisons Dangereuses by Pierre Choderlos de Laclos. With Colin Firth, Annette Bening. The last of three period pieces Forman made in the 1980s, this tale of sexual manipulation among French aristocrats shows the director at the height of his visual craftsmanship, and features Bening and Firth in their first high-profile roles. Forman's loose interpretation is one of the most opulently designed and emotionally resonant of the book's many screen versions. 137 min.
