Yves Saint Laurent movie

Five years after his death the world of Cinema celebrates one of the most iconical, genial and restless characters of fashion system, Yves Saint Laurent, with a biopic entrusted to the French director Jalil Lespert with actor Pierre Niney in the role of the late designer and focused on the binomial genius and recklessness, presented at the last Berlin Film Festival and just released in the italian theatres. 

The movie, one of the two dedicated to him  and the only one approved by Pierre Bergé, his former partner in business and private life, intents to trace a portrait of the tormented soul of the French designer starting from his arrival to the direction of Maison Dior after the death of its founder. A life made of brilliant creations and successes, but also many dark moments until the meeting with Bergé who signed his rebirth, sentimental and professional with the launch at only 26 years old of his own brand YSL that will become, during the years, the symbol of those elegance, sophistication and style, traditional and innovative at the same time, typically french.

A movie that adds almost nothing to Yves Saint Laurent’s legend but that talks about several topics with – and I don’t know if these are the right terms - sobriety, elegance and lightness

  1. I cannot wait to see Bertrand Bonello's "Saint Laurent" when it comes out October 2014. Not having Pierre Bergé's approval means that Bonello has the freedom to show a side of Yves Saint Laurent or Pierre Bergé for that matter that Bergé doesn't want the world to see.The only great thing about Lespert's movie are Pierre Niney,Guillaume Galienne and the costumes. Bonello's movie has the 4x César nominee and the 2013 Palme d'Or winner and 2014 BAFTA nominee for Blue is the Warmest Color Léa Seydoux (Benoit Jacquot's Farewell My Queen,Brad Bird's Mission Impossible,Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris,Tarantino's Inglorious Basterds,Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel;Yorgos Lanthimos's The Lobster) and César winners Gaspard Ulliel,Louis Garrel and Jeremie Renier and Bonello's screenwriter is Thomas Bidegain who wrote Marion Cotillard's Rust and Bone which was nominated at the Golden Globes for Best Foreign Movie and for The Prophet by César and BAFTA winner Jacques Audiard .I expect a better script and better acting from everyone.

  2. I so much heard about this movie. It would be interesting to see how they represent YSL.




  3. I'm rooting for this right now...
