One of the best movies of that decade, the 80’s, directed with a masterful hand by Stephen Frears, and starring some of the biggest stars. The movie is set in the 18th century Rococo France, Marquise de Merteuil (Amazing Glenn Close), challenges her fried the womanizer Vicomte Sebastian (John Malkovich), to seduce the soon to be married Cecile de Volanges (Uma Thurman) and provide proof of his exploit. His reward, in case fulfilled the challenge, will be to spend the night with the Marquise. However, what she didn’t gamble on is he, not only seduced Cecile, but also ended falling in love. Which didn’t sit well with the Marquise. Soon the games take a slightly more dangerous turn, as if it wasn’t enough…
