Yves Saint Laurent: CELEBRATION
“Celebration offers a rare, behind-the-scenes look of Yves Saint Laurent’s last few years of genius.” — Vogue
“It’s a priceless addition to our understanding of how Yves Saint Laurent — the man, the myth, la marque — operated.” — Variety
A fascinating, long-suppressed documentary on the legendary Yves Saint Laurent, commissioned by his business – and on-and-off romantic – partner, Pierre Bergé, and then shelved for more than a decade after Bergé decided it was too revealing. Fortunately, Berge relented in 2015. and Celebration has finally become available. Filmed over three years as YSL was becoming increasingly frail, director Olivier Meyrou captures the last of the great haute couture houses. Seamstresses, cutters and models work frantically to finesse the tiniest adjustments, as the principals undergo nothing less than existential crises. An intimate evocation of the complex relationship between two of fashion’s most brilliantly creative and profoundly idiosyncratic men. In French w/English subtitles. Not rated. 74 minutes.
