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.
