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.
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?
