Goofs

YSL's black leather Beat collection is shown as having been created in 1964 in the film, suggesting YSL was a leader of the Mod look of the mid 1960s, but in fact his Beat collection was done in 1960 and was too youthful for Dior clientele at the time and the main reason YSL was fired from Dior.

Quite a alright French biography drama!
19 March 2019 | by IrishchatterSee all my reviews

From out of all the biopic dramas I've seen, I gotta say this is one of the confusing ones I've seen because well, I never heard of Saint Laurent before nor it's creators who were a gay fashion designer couple. However watching the drama was quite gluing to watch and of course both the couples embraces were very uplifting as well as romantic. The actors did a good job playing the men and the backgrounds of each places they were in are quite elegant. Even the park scene was quite nice, I say people are right that France does have a romance size to it.

This isn't really one of the best gay movies I have seen but it's certainly not bad to give it a watch if you feel like watching a movie! 7/10
