Yves Saint Laurent
Oops, just missed it! This film is no longer available on Netflix streaming or DVD. Who knew? Yves Saint Laurent is undoubtedly fashion's official bad boy of the 20th century.
There have been a few documentaries that reveal the genius and the exceptional character of the young, iconic designer, but it wasn't until this year that not one, but two biopics were released, bringing the colorful biography to life.
Both highlight the story in an exciting and captivating way, and one is available on Netflix!
Pierre Niney delivers an uncanny Yves Saint Laurent. His vulnerability, his artistry, and his overall essence is vexingly on point with the actual designer. His character evolves throughout the time span of the film, just as fashion itself goes through exciting visual changes.
An essential part of the turbulence and vivaciousness behind the fashion house, and Yves Saint Laurent's success, was Perre Berge, his business partner/ long term lover, played elegantly by Guillaume Gallienne.
Prepare to ride through the psychedelic sensual and sinful ride that is at times hard to believe, but at most times, just beautiful to watch.
