Y V E S S A I N T L A U R E N T : anxiety, love & beauty
❝Yves, tu était si jeune, si beau, si timide. Je ne t'avais pas encore rencontré, et tu allais mené seul ton premier combat.❞ - Pierre Bergé
'Yves Saint Laurent' directed by Jalil Lespert is a film of highly sensitive atmosphere, elegance and sensuality. It is also very romantic, focusing mainly on the love affair between Yves Matthieu Saint-Laurent and Pierre Bergé. Two films were made after the death of Saint-Laurent. This, in my opinion, outdid the other by a long run. More subtletly, more beauty and more ambiance, as well as impressive performances from the actors (who unsurprisingly are from the 'comédie-française'). The film shows us the dark side of Saint-Laurent, his deep set anxiety, his difficulties in dealing with society and his bouts of depression and how his lover stayed by him through it all. It also shows us the genius of Saint-Laurent's creations - simple and sophisticated to perfection. The dialogue is beautifully written and the music fits perfectly as it is both incredibly emotional and delicately elegant.
Most beautiful music from the film:
❝Tu aimais la beauté, Yves..❞- Pierre Bergé
❝Je n'ai peut-etre aucun principe, mais je n'ai qu'une parole.❞- Pierre Bergé
❝The most beautiful makeup for a woman is passion, but cosmetics are easier to buy.❞- YSL
