About L'Amour Fou
Yves Saint Laurent is heralded as one of the greatest fashion designers of the twentieth century. Together with his once-lover and longtime business partner, Pierre Bergé, the Yves Saint Laurent Couture House broke boundaries that shook the world of fashion, forever changing the way women dressed. Along the way, they collected a one-of-a- kind art collection that could rival the holdings of any gallery. Upon Saint Laurent’s death, Bergé decided to sell the collection that they had spent their lives amassing. Known as “The Auction of the Century,” this multi-million dollar sale heralded the end of an era.
Winner of the Fipresci International Critics Prize at the Toronto International Film Festival and an official selection of the TriBeCa and San Francisco Film Festivals, L'AMOUR FOU is a grand tribute to an empire of decadence and beauty. This gorgeously lush biopic of one of the greatest names in fashion will stay with you, and linger in your mind. As Saint Laurent once said, “Fashions fade, style is eternal,” and this gorgeously stylish film will not soon fade from memory.
