Aerden [userpic]
Tugging at Harp Strings

I saw part of Dangerous Liaisons last night--not the version starring Glenn Close; the other one. I don't care for the movie, because it's about senseless cruelty. But I and my classical pianist character David Young absolutely love the method of exchanging love letters--by inserting them in between the strings of the girl's harp.

*swoons* (g)

Current Mood: godawful romantic

Dangerous Liaisons is one of those great morality plays. The villains get their well-deserved comeuppance, and it doesn't feel contrived at all.

That said, I can't watch the middle part of it. It turns my stomach. :( And knowing Madame de Tourval dies just wrenches me.


Isn't Michelle Pfeiffer the ingenue in the first version? I know she's a great actress and all, very practiced, but that still doesn't stop me from thinking things like Those assholes are messing with Isabeau! How dare they?!

Okay, so I have a rich fantasy life... (g)
