    • Synopsis
    • Etienne Chatiliez, award winning director of such hit comedies as "Life is a Long Quiet River" and "Happiness is in the Field," and France's favorite funny girl, Valarie Lemercier, team in this modern morality tale, set to music, about a racist's come-uppance.
      Prejudiced marketing exec Agathe Clery looks down on black people, going so far as to make sure that Cosmetico, the cosmetics company she works for, never hires anyone who isn't Caucasian like herself. But just when Agathe is poised for glory with the launch of Scandinavia, a new range of beatuy products for ultra-fair skins, her own lily white complexion starts mysteriously darkening. The newly 'black', Agathe loses her boyfriend and her job and learns what it is like to be on the recieving end of society's prejudices. Forced to radically rethink her values, Agathe gets hired by a company that practices reverse discrimination and meets her romantic match in the company's tall dark and handsome boss.
