Too Beautiful for You (French: Trop belle pour toi) is a 1989 French comedy-drama film written and directed by Bertrand Blier. It tells the story of Bernard (Gérard Depardieu), a well established BMW car dealer in the South of France, who's cheating on his beautiful wife (Carole Bouquet) with his ordinary-looking secretary (Josiane Balasko).


Barthélémy Bernard, owner of a BMW car dealership, is married to a beautiful woman, Florence, but he falls in love with a very plain-looking woman, Colette, who has been hired as an interim secretary to his store. This relationship will change his life, as much as Schubert's music.



The film had 2,031,131 admissions in France.[1]
