Movie Info

Originally titled Trop Belle Pour Toi, French filmmaker Bertrand Blier's Too Beautiful for You takes several unexpected side trips while exploring its basic romantic-triangle plotline. Successful business executive and family man Gerard Depardieu falls hopelessly in love with his secretary Josiane Balasko. Flying in the face of motion picture convention, Depardieu's wife Carole Bouquet is drop-dead gorgeous, while Balasko is chubby and long in tooth! Further confounding the audience (in a most entertaining fashion) is the presence of Bouquet in a secondary role, as Balasko's woebegone neighbor. We don't know how he does it, but director Blier invests his funniest scenes in Too Beautiful for You with profound melancholy, while stirring up gales of laughter in the serious portions.

Audience Reviews for Too Beautiful for You (Trop belle pour toi)

    Great bit of acting here to pull off the seeminly incomprehensible affair..then again, how many examples do we see of this in our lives?

    Initially I found this strangely moving, but the deeper it went into the affair, the less I lost all sympathy for all the main characters. Excepting perhaps the wife, I did feel sorry for her. Nicely filmed and acted, but not the most enjoyable storyline. Kind of off-putting, quite honestly.
