Storyline

Shortly after the death of Yves Saint Laurent (1936-2008), his lover Pierre Bergé talks to the camera about their life together, moving chronologically from their meeting when 21-year-old Saint Laurent became creative director at Christian Dior upon the founder's death, through twice-annual unveilings of new collections, life in Marrakesh, Saint Laurent's depression and drug use, sobriety, and retirement. The boxing and auctioning of their vast collection of art brings the story to a close. Archival photos and news footage as well as interviews with a few friends give texture to Bergé's account.

Why did Bergé sell everything immediately?
29 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A documentary on Yves Saint Laurent's professional life from the age of 20 on as told mainly by his partner Pierre Bergé.

It is interesting to look inside a world that one knows nothing about-- What appears on the everyday street is so far removed from the weird out of the world outfits of these fashion houses. They must have to make any serious money off accessories = purple purses and matching earrings and so forth...

My overriding question is why did Bergé sell off everything the minute Saint Laurent was dead?....that does not speak of a healthy relationship no matter how you try to dress it up. People who really love someone want to leave everything the same. Some lame excuse is offered that a museum was too expensive, I don't buy it. Bergé got some enormous sum from the auction 500 million Euros or something.

Bergé is a bit of a dour lower middle class pedestrian man strange combination.

It is an interesting exploration of a successful gay man's life. How often do we see that?
