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.

Rich fashion
11 November 2010 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

It begins with a totally sick Christies auction, which could make any Tea Party member go communist. Yves Saint-Laurent's lover, or shall we say lifetime love, is selling their furniture for fantasy prizes. It's a beautiful home, which certainly could have remained a museum.

We follow YSL through his career, starting as an assistant to Christian Dior. It develops into a life full of fame, celebration, meeting the most well-known people in the world, but also of despair and depression. A life he wants to end many times.

Upperclass problems if anything was. But you can't help getting touched by the destiny of this very shy and nervous person. A terrible snob with kind eyes.
