Too Beautiful for You (1989, Gérard Depardieu, Josiane Balasko)


Bertrand Blier's sharp, funny and beautifully constructed take on the meaning of love has Depardieu as a wealthy businessman who is happily married to the beautiful Florence (Bouquet). When he falls in love with his (relatively) dowdy and plain secretary, he, and everyone else, is amazed. What constitutes love and lust is an eternal question, and Blier attacks his subject from all possible angles, creating a narrative that gets right to the heart of the matter.
