Set in pre-war Paris, France this film is perfect for those who love period pieces. But this isn’t just another brush with history. This movie is sensual, seductive and a bit naughty. The liaisons, that are referred to in the title, are the affairs and tryst that harlequin romance novels were made for. This film was also what cruel intentions was loosely based on (so if you ever wondered about Ryan Phillippe’s character in that movie, check out John Malkovich in this one).
