Miloš Forman and Jean-Claude Carrière found the pathos that underlay the novel's libertine decadence, its cruel twists of sexual intrigue and false moral posturing, and captured what André Malraux famously described as Laclos's "eroticization of the human will." http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=371538 MoMA MoMA
