They have made the film function successfully almost as well as in the original setting.

Much of the cynicism, and thus the fun, of its many Western predecessors goes missing.

Schadenfreude carries a delectable tang no matter the language, and as the history of Hollywood shows, stories about pretty people behaving badly remain reliably alluring.

Zhang, expertly conveying someone closed off yet silently sensual, even rolls out a tear during a moment of impending intimacy as exquisitely timed as a dancer's move.

Takes Pierre Choderlos de Laclos' 18th century source material to its most sumptuous silliness - I mean that as a compliment.

This is a relatively shallow entertainment, but its glossy surfaces certainly are, well, seductive.

The cinematography is gorgeous, the costumes are gorgeous, the sets are gorgeous, and the people are so gorgeous it beggars belief. What can I say? Gorgeous.

Sexual intrigue brings heartbreak in an adaptation of the famous French novel, updated to 1930s Shanghai.

It's all just window-dressing: pretty, but substance-free.

Shanghai in the 1930s seems an ideal context from which to offer social criticism, but Dangerous Liaisons forgoes engaging with the political dimension of its story altogether.

This reset version from the original 18th century Paris to early 20th century Shanghai certainly looks fabulous, and the cast are all great. But maybe they're not quite the right cast for the characters
