Yves St Laurent: The Last Collections (PG)

Two decades after its filming, Olivier Meyrou’s controversial yet exquisitely drawn portrait of France’s last great fashion designer, Yves Saint Laurent, has finally seen the light of day, having previously been withheld from release by Saint Laurent’s business partner, Pierre Bergé. Echoing its ambiguous title, Celebration goes behind-the-scenes to present both Yves the Legend and Yves the Man, as he prepares his final collection before the fashion house was sold to Gucci in 1999. Icons of the glamour industry – such as Loulou de la Falaise, Laetitia Casta (also appearing in A Faithful Man at this year’s Festival) and the many top models who have donned Saint Laurent’s gowns – show their unerring dedication to the fashion house and its namesake.

Dir Olivier Meyrou | 2007 (Release: 2018) | France | 73 mins | MUBI

It’s a priceless addition to our understanding of how Yves Saint Laurent – the man, the myth, la marque – operated. – Hollywood Reporter
