In Blier’s piquant comedy of love and self-image, Carole Bouquet took a career-pivoting turn as a chic wife blindsided by BMW-dealer husband Gérard Depardieu’s infidelity with decidedly un-chic temp Josiane Balasko, herself married to François Cluzet. The musical accompaniment is comprised of a wealth of Franz Schubert selections. César Awards rained down on Blier for Best Film, Director, Screenplay, Editing (Claudine Merlin), and on Bouquet for Best Actress.
