Le Beau Mariage (The Good Marriage) is a 1982 French film directed by Éric Rohmer, starring Béatrice Romand, André Dussollier, Féodor Atkine. It is one of Rohmer's "comedies and proverbs" (comédies et proverbes). Its theme is a proverb from La Fontaine: "Quel esprit ne bat la campagne ? qui ne fait château en Espagne ?" (that is, "Who doesn't daydream? Who doesn't build castles in Spain").


Sabine, a student in art history, is growing tired of the part of the mistress of a painter and family man, Simon. She meets Edmond, beautiful, young, rich and free, and declares that she is going to marry him.
