L’amour fou is a magnificent documentary about YSL, told by Pierre Berger.
Few changed fashion like Yves Saint-Laurent did in the 20th century. His legacy upon his death in 2008 was more than his contributions to fashion; it included one of the great collections of art in the world – and the man he built an empire with. In this documentary, Yves Saint Laurent is followed through the eyes of lifetime love and business partner Pierre Berge from his early days as a design prodigy for Christian Dior through his decades as the face of a fashion empire.
