Yves Saint Laurent Jalil Lespert, 2014.
Color. 106 min.
With Pierre Niney, Guillaume Gallienne, Charlotte Le Bon
with English subtitles
In January 1958, a 21-year-old Yves Saint Laurent (Pierre Niney) was unexpectedly called upon to run Christian Dior’s legendary Paris fashion house. All eyes turned to this young assistant as he presented his first collection for Dior and instantly ascended to the heights of haute couture’s elite class. At this groundbreaking show, Saint Laurent would also be introduced to Pierre Bergé (Guillaume Gallienne), patron of the arts, future love of his life, and lifelong business partner. Just three years after this fated encounter the pair would found the Yves Saint Laurent Company, now one of the biggest luxury powerhouses around the world.
Directed by Jalil Lespert with a screenplay by Lespert and Marie-Pierre Huster, Yves Saint Laurent is at once a captivating story about the making of an icon and a testament to the power of enduring love.
