Fashionistas and the Art Basel crowd may be enthralled, but for everyone else the documentary L'Amour Fou (Crazy Love) is a slog.
For fashion lovers, the film's mini-retrospective of Saint Laurent's work should be a thrill.
The film engages on its own terms, and if you don't love the clothes, you'll likely find one or more of the couple's houses to be more to your liking, in that nose-pressed-against-the-glass way.
"L'Amour Fou" is an elegant fabric without the rough texture of real life and love.
Beautifully filmed, "L'Amour Fou" is often quite moving as it documents the dismantling of a mutual life.
To suggest, as this oblique film does, that you are what you collect is like looking at Picasso's art collection without correlating it to his own works.
It is devoted, rather, to the calm, thoughtful, and ultimately elusive reflections of M. Bergé on the dismantling of a legacy
I'm afraid I learned more about Yves's companion and business partner of 50 years Pierre Bergé than I did about the iconic fashion designer.
It's a fairly circumspect affair, though Bergé talks frankly of his partner's alcoholism, drug-taking and terrible bouts of depression.
It goes through all the usual celebratory motions but, without giving away too many secrets, suggests that nothing satisfied him enough - in fact, quite a lot made him suicidal.
Saint-Laurent's passage from stuttering neophyte to withdrawn, depressed couture legend is elegantly evoked.
A wonderfully intimate insider's look at what was going on backstage while Yves Saint-Laurent's models were strutting down the catwalk for more than four decades.
