Without love, pleasure must lead directly to disgust

In 1782, Choderlos de Laclos’ novel of sex and betrayal in pre-revolutionary France scandalised the world. Today, its razor-sharp depiction of deception and manipulation remains frighteningly relevant.

Former lovers, the Marquise de Merteuil and Vicomte de Valmont compete in a complex game of seduction and revenge. Merteuil incites Valmont to corrupt the innocent Cecile de Volanges before her wedding night, but Valmont has already targeted the untouchable purity of Madame de Tourvel.
