L'amour Fou

"It is a measure of the film’s effectiveness that YSL’s mark on the 20th century seems indisputable and that his loss is felt even for those of us who never met the man."
- Lisa Nesselson, Screen Daily

Synopsis

Yves Saint Laurent is heralded as one of the greatest fashion designers of the twentieth century. Together with his once-lover and longtime business partner, Pierre Bergé, the Yves Saint Laurent Couture House broke boundaries that shook the world of fashion, forever changing the way women dressed. With echoes of Lagerfeld Confidential, Valentino: The Last Emperor and The September Issue, L'Amour Fou is a grand tribute to an empire of decadence and beauty. This gorgeously lush biopic of one of the greatest names in fashion will stay with you, and linger in your mind. As Saint Laurent once said, "Fashions fade, style is eternal", and this gorgeously stylish film will not soon fade from memory.
