"Guaranteed to satisfy the Francophile and the fashionista in one fell swoop, with equal parts romanticism, elliptical French philosophizing, and a tasteful dab of decadence."–Vanity Fair

The public life of Yves Saint Laurent was as extravagant as it was decadent. As a design prodigy and then the grand couturier of a fashion empire he influenced fifty years of style – but few are familiar with the private life of the legend. In Pierre Thoretton's L'Amour Fou, Pierre Bergé, the man with which YSL shared four decades of his life and love, reflects on the equally extravagant history of their personal relationship. Set against the 2009 auction of the priceless, elaborate art collection amassed by Saint Laurent and Bergé over several decades, this extraordinary documentary provides an unprecedented look at the life of a mythic personality, whose personal life matched his public for elegance, extravagance and passion. An award winner at the Toronto Film Festival, L'Amour Fou is an un-missable film event for documentary fans and fashion diehards alike. (100 mins., HD video)
