I've seen both versions of the YSL story and I liked this one much better. The clothes are the real thing, there was less sensationalism regarding his love life and the actor who portrayed Saint Laurent made you fall in love with him. He captured the shyness and insecurity of Saint Laurent in a way the actor in the other film did not. If anything, I wish the movie were longer as there was much more of the story to tell, but I'll settle for what was given. Worth seeing!
Having lived in Paris during 14 of the years covered in this movie and experienced my own brother's similar life, I was overwhelmed by the beauty and truth of this movie. St.Laurent was tragically cursed by the sensitivity that often accompanies artistic genius but he was blessed in his courageous life partner. This movie is an experience not to be missed.
Great movie for both fashion lovers and those interested n the culture of the time and people. Well researched, excellent screen play, and good direction.
