Movie Info

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 Berge, the man with which YSL shared four decades of his life and love, reflects on the equally extravagant history of their personal relationship. Framed around the 2009 auction of the priceless, elaborate art collection amassed by Yves and Pierre personally over several decades, this extraordinary documentary provides an unprecedented look at the life of the mythic personality, whose personal life matched his public for elegance, extravagance and passion. An Official Selection of the Toronto and Tribeca Film Festivals, L'AMOUR FOU is an un-missable film event for fans of documentary film and fashion die-hards alike. --(c) IFC

  • Saint-Laurent's passage from stuttering neophyte to withdrawn, depressed couture legend is elegantly evoked.

  • Fashionistas and the Art Basel crowd may be enthralled, but for everyone else the documentary L'Amour Fou (Crazy Love) is a slog.

  • 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.

    May 27, 2011 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Beautifully filmed, "L'Amour Fou" is often quite moving as it documents the dismantling of a mutual life.
