Yves Saint Laurent by Jalil Lespert, 2014 (NR)

with Pierre Niney de la Comédie-Française, Guillaume Gallienne de la Comédie Française (Les garçons et Guillaume, à table), Charlotte Le Bon, Laura Smet, Marie de Villepin, Nikolai Kinski, Ruben Alves, Astrid Whettnall, Marianne Basler, Adeline D'Hermy de la Comédie-Française, Xavier Lafitte

A look at the life of French designer Yves Saint Laurent from the beginning of his career in 1958 when he met his lover and business partner, Pierre Bergé.

On the last days of my trip to Paris, I decided to come back to the theater to see this one. Just came out, everyone was really positive about it, even Pierre Bergé himself, and Guillaume Gallienne was in it. The movie is a little long, with shortcuts on YSL's career (which is sad, because they went to the obvious, what everybody knows about YSL designs), and developing more on the psychological imbalance, the tumultuous relationship with Pierre Bergé and the drug problems. Which is great I guess if you wanna know more about all the drama of his life... but if you are interested in what he did to move fashion forward, this is not the right movie for you.

  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. Thank you, and I also look forward to Bertrand Bonello's Saint Laurent
