“Valmont” (1989): Thoughts

Posted in Adults, Movie at 12:04 am by Rosepixie

I really like this movie version of this story much better than the more famous version. Fairuza Balk simply seems more convincing as the wide-eyed and innocent young bride-to-be than Uma Thurman does. The story is full for rather horrible people doing horrible things, but in this adaptation it’s easier to see the pain behind some of the horrible things they do and the real ramifications of their actions.
