Comparing the book dangerous liaisons and the movie version cruel intentions

This was shot in the late 80s, on film, with natural lighting yet its not a dark film like The Last of the Mohicans: Because Cruel Intentions is such a modernized version of this story, the ending is a lot different.

There are some major differences between these two works, if only because of when they were written. No one actually said, "Let them eat cake" either in the s Marie Antoinette was framed or in the s, but the ruling policies certainly gave this attitude.

The stories of both works have basically the same structure, until it gets toward the endings. Danceny does this and then moves away for a while.

Firth, while not as celebrated for his acting skills as Malkovich, is nonetheless a fine actor, and his charm and playful inventiveness are more in keeping with the character of Valmont, whom women love. The movie going public still had Amadeus on their minds, one of the greatest period pieces ever made, and Dangerous Liaisons with its more scandalous storyline, beautiful costumes, sets and music was an instant hit.

In the movie, it does not really say what happens to Ronald Danceny. This is a very multi-layered story structure which is lost on most people because they lack experience and perception on the human condition. The one problem I do have with the movie is the way that Sebastian turns from so evil and wicked to this love sick kid at the end of the film.

Cecile confesses this to Kathryn. The theme of appearance is important in both the book and the movie, but it is also different. In the book, her character dies, but in the movie, she is the vengeful, independent woman. Sebastian Valmont dies by being hit by a car because he pushed Annette Tourvel out of the way in order to save her life.

The subject matter was ingenious and its much like the movie Cruel Intentions [Blu-ray ], set in the age of French 18th century aristocracy. John Malkovic actually looks kind of cute here where I would never say that about him in any other movie.

His direction was more comedic and he allowed a greater development of secondary characters, while Frears concentrated more on the two leads.

Sebastian begins to fall in love with Annette, who returns his feelings but still resists him. She would rather declare victory over other women who might threaten her or rather her vanity.

The story is set in France around Caldwell reacts to him coldly and leaves with Cecile. Sebastian tracks her down, professes his love, and makes love to her. This verdict remained the official one throughout the later nineteenth century.

Sebastian calls her a hypocrite because she claims to be waiting for her one true love, but when her one true love chooses to love her back, she resists. I have understood her cruelty throughout the movie and have forgiven her but society is hissing and the end seems near.

Truly decadent, yet a true delight.
