A Pink Floyd album cover, a classic French film, or preview stills from a remake of The Godfather?

This is obviously from a Pink Floyd album cover:
While this is evidently from a French movie - maybe a sophisticated '80s comedy in which the son has hired a tall, glamorous model for the weekend to convince his parents he isn't gay:

Or it's a screwball comedy about the ageing head of a global corporation - who's married to a wife who's far too young for him - and his chosen successor - a young guy married to a woman old enough to be his grandmother - who decide to be sensible and swap partners!
Here, the two guys - who texted their wives the news during a night on the tiles - arrive home the next morning to face the music:
If it's contemporary, it could be a feelgood film, possibly scripted by Richard Curtis, about two world leaders who realise they're gay and fall in love: 
Then again, some of the stills have The Godfather written all over them. Here, for instance, Don Corleone tells Michael, "Now listen - whoever comes to you with this Barzini meeting, he's the traitor. Don't forget that.":
"I know it was you, Fredo. You broke my heart!":
"I love you. But don't ever take sides against someone from the family again. Ever.":
"Don't worry - I'm gonna make him an offer he can't refuse.":
But I think they should have stuck with Don Corleone having his heart attack in an orange grove:
