I’m not really a fashion man, I love suits and ties and all that stuff but I don’t really care if it’s designer or not, the label doesn’t matter to me in the slightest, which is why I was expecting Saint Laurent to be a boring biopic that took the tone of a documentary rather than a film. Going by the trailer though I was very wrong.
There are two films this year about Yves Saint Laurent (the other one is Jalil Lespert’s Yves Saint Laurent), and this one is the unauthorized and unrestrained one. It’s full of drugs, alcohol, sex and even attempted murder, a far more entertaining concoction than I had been expecting.
The Gaspard Ulliel, Jérémie Renier and Louis Garrel, It will be opening in L.A. and New York on May 8th.
