I am wondering, are any of you familiar with most of the films within Keanu Reeves’ repertoire? Well, I certainly am, and I am quite familiar with the film entitled, “Dangerous Liaisons”. And whether or not any of you have seen it, I am making it the topic of discussion for this week.

Dangerous Liaisons” is quite suspenseful, with romance, sexual intrigue, and scandal intermixed within. To begin, the “Marquise de Merteuil” (Glenn Close) decides to concoct a mischievous and coldblooded seduction game with former lover, the “Vicomte de Valmont” (John Malkovich), during the 18th century in France. Some of the individuals conspired against are innocent; whilst some are not. The “Marquise de Merteuil” issues a daring challenge for the “Vicomte de Valmont”; which is to seduce the young inexperienced “Cecile de Volanges” (Uma Thurman) who is presently espoused to an older gentleman (as the “Marquise de Merteuil” is aware that the Vicomte believes success impinges upon sexual conquests).

Storyline: “In 18th century France, the Marquise de Merteuil and the Vicomte de Valmont play a dangerous game of seduction. Valmont is someone who measures success by the number of his conquests and Merteuil challenges him to seduce the soon to be married Cecile de Volanges and provide proof in writing of his success. His reward for doing so will be to spend the night with Merteuil. He has little difficulty seducing Cecile but what he really wants is to seduce Madame de Tourvel. When Merteuil learns that he has actually fallen in love with her, she refuses to let him claim his reward for seducing Cecile. Death soon follows.” Written by garykmcd via imdb.com

The “Vicomte de Valmont” is secretly more interested in seducing the lovely “Madame de Tourvel” (Michelle Pfeiffer), who is temporarily residing with his devoted aunt. However, he accepts the challenge when the “Marquise de Merteuil” agrees to spend one intimate evening with him, if he manages to successfully seduce “Cecile de Volanges”. This is because, at the time, he finds the “Marquise’s” seductive and wily charms rather difficult to resist.

To make a long story short, my Muse, Keanu Reeves, portrays the dreamy, chivalrous, and lovable (yet, quite innocently ignorant), “Chevalier Danceny”, in this film. He is a penniless composer of 18th century music. The “Chevalier Danceny” falls in love with “Cecile de Volanges”, who has been raised via convent education in a nunnery of the Catholic Church.

Please feel free to read the intriguing Rotten Tomatoes Movie Review below the web link: https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/1005199_dangerous_liaisons

“Director Stephen Frears accelerates entertainingly through Christopher Hampton’s wig-and-powder sado-comedy about sexual mind games in 18th-century France.” Written by Desson Thomson of The Washington Post; a Top Critic

This film has quite a few comic points, I must say. The “Marquise de Merteuil” convinces “Cecile de Volanges” to engage in intimate relations with the “Chevalier Danceny” and her future husband after the “Vicomte de Valmont” has molded her into an accomplished lover; which is considered a scandalized title for a female during this era in history. Whilst, incidentally, the “Vicomte” has already audaciously seduced this young innocent in a devious and indecent fashion. In the meantime, while giving this advice, the “Marquise” has seduced Keanu’s, “Chevalier Danceny” character, and the “Vicomte de Valmont” has fulfilled his own nefarious purpose; seducing the lovely “Madame de Tourvel”.

There is so much sexual intrigue and a multitude of plotting going on throughout “Dangerous Liaisons” that there is virtually no opportunity to become bored at all. Keanu Reeves looks so adorable, from beginning to end, with his fresh-faced cuteness (even whilst being dressed head-to-toe in clothing heralding from the 18th century era in France). I simply adored how endearing my Muse, Keanu, appeared with tears filling his eyes when viewing a captivating onstage performance at the Opera. And who wouldn’t have wanted to wipe those tears away?

What would your own ideal future look like? I want the best for my friends and family, good work, a healthy relationship and some fun. My idea of fun? Spending time with friends, a little traveling,...{Keanu Reeves Image: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/510666045227873085}

And that is not all which happened; as some tragic events occurred, as well. Overall “Dangerous Liaisons” is quite a captivating film to see, even with all of its unscrupulous plots, unexpected twists, and immoral behavior of its characters. I was thoroughly entertained by it, although this is not my favorite kind of film. And it was actually nominated for 7 Oscars at the Academy Awards that year due to such riveting acting, attractive costumes, and exceptional cinematography. But, it won for Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Costume Design, and Best Art Direction.

Incidentally, for any of you who have not been informed, I am the Creator of this Blog and Author of the Action Adventure/Futuristic Fantasy E-Book entitled, “The Mystery Alliance: Evian’s Saga”. And Keanu Reeves is my Special Muse and Inspiration for my creation of “Evian Magi”, the protagonist (main character) within “The Mystery Alliance: Evian’s Saga”. For those of you who have not been apprised, “Evian Magi” is the Mystic Fantasy Hero version of Keanu Reeves.

Thank you very much, Keanu Reeves; for you are such a wonderful Muse, and as sweet as can be toward me, you genteel gentleman. And I thank GOD, most predominantly, for all of Your blessed support. Now, if your interest has been piqued, please feel free to purchase a copy of “The Mystery Alliance: Evian’s Saga” at: https://www.amazon.com/Mystery-Alliance-Evians-Saga-ebook/dp/B01L0K28KS/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1480461906&sr=8-2&keywords=the+mystery+alliance.
