A wedding for a young couple can sometimes be a way of acquiring, through gifts, the necessities to jump-start a home life. But when a couple have been together for over 20 years and are in need of nothing in particular, what do they do?

“Les Liaisons Dangereuses,” the 18th-century French novel by Pierre Choderlos de Laclos about aristocratic power games and the lives they affect, has been adapted into every form imaginable. It can boast of at least seven versions on film, including two set in Korea, an opera, a radio series, and even a ballet. But it is the Christopher Hampton stage adaptation that has garnered the most attention in the Western world, first as a successful Broadway production and then as a successful Hollywood film in the 1980s.
