This is a remarkable film which details the life and career of Yves Saint Laurent, a French fashion designer who revolutionized women's fashion. In 1957 at the tender age of 22 Yves Saint was creative director of Dior a famous fashion house, where he met Pierre Berge, the man who would become his lover and business partner for life. Yves was not afraid of breaking the rules and eventually set up his own fashion house. With success came failure. Fame and fortune introduced him to partying, alcohol abuse, drug addiction and promiscuity.

This film highlights Yves was not an easy person to live with. He suffered from manic depression and his mental illness accelerated stress and angst which led him on a self-destructive path. Yves Saint Laurent is a glamorous and stylish film which brilliantly captures all the main elements of Laurent's incredible life. Laurentís genuine fashion collections and actual places of residence are utilized optimizing authenticity.

Performances are convincing and invigorating. The narration by the character Pierre Berge, Yves's lover, is effective adding depth to the audience's understanding of who Yves really was. This is also importantly the epic love story of Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Berge, showcasing that in spite of the negativity in their relationship, their love triumphed until Laurent's death in 2008.
