CELEBRATION

Directed by Olivier Meyrou

Cast: Laetitia Casta, Pierre Bergé, Yves Saint Laurent

This portrait of legendary French fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent opened at the 2007 Berlin Film Festival before being unexpectedly pulled from distribution after Saint Laurent’s former lover and business partner, Pierre Bergé, successfully sued to have the film blocked from public view. The question of why is fairly easily answered upon viewing the film, a stunning and unflinching portrait of a once-great genius at the end of his career.
