Yves Saint Laurent

Biopic on the French fashion designer (played by Pierre Niney, It Boy) - one of fashion's most creative proponents and the epitome of French haute couture. Saint Laurent's creative challenges and self-destructive struggles are followed from 1958 when the 21-year-old begins work at Christian Dior...

"Paris in 1958. Talented young designer Yves Saint Laurent takes up a position as assistant to couturier Christian Dior. After Dior’s sudden death Saint Laurent is made artistic director of one of the world’s most renowned fashion houses. His first collection is a triumphant success and this shy fashion genius becomes famous overnight. In Pierre Bergé he finds the love of his life and together they found their own label. As the years go by, a series of creative crises and emotional conflicts begin to drain this sensitive artist of his energy; they also put a strain on his relationship and the company’s future." (Berlin Film Festival)

Clothes make the man, but can't save the film, in Yves Saint Laurent, in which the life of one of haute couture's great innovators gets disappointingly by-the-numbers treatment.

Hardcore fashionistas will doubtless flock to drool over the endless catwalk shows, packed with genuine YSL archive pieces.

This polite film, though touching in places, is so desperate not to offend, it's the film equivalent of sensible shoes.

Tends to telegraph what's happening next with on-the-nose dialogue, leaving behind an orderly but not vividly realized biography (or necessarily a complete one).

Swooning, self-absorbed and strangely lacking in any wider interest in society

Two transformative performances compensate for a screenplay with no real third act.

As elegant as the man's clothes, this handsome biopic traces 20 incident-filled years in the life of the designer.
