Trivia

After working together on Paris, je t'aime (2006), Gus Van Sant and Gaspard Ulliel kept in touch, and Van Sant wanted to work with Ulliel again on another film. They didn't really know what at that time, and a few months later Van Sant came up with this idea of a film on Yves Saint Laurent. He wanted to adapt this book that was just released at that time called "Beautiful Fall" by Alicia Drake, and so he told Ulliel that he would be a great young version of Yves Saint Laurent, but the film was never made. Ulliel kept thinking that it was a shame that the film never happened, because it would have been such an amazing character to work on. Years later, Ulliel met with Bertrand Bonello for the same role. See more »

Goofs

The translator in the boardroom scene mistranslated the sales numbers: in French she's told the sales increased from 1.3m up to 2.6m, but she translates it to English as 1.6m up to 2.3m. See more »

Wow! What BOMB.
27 September 2015 | by sjrenterSee all my reviews

Looked forward to this version of the YSL saga. Was disappointed in the first, Yves Saint Laurent, so had high hopes for this one which was favorably reviewed. One wonders what film the NYT reviewer had watched? This mess is not properly a film, at best it is an indulgent impressionist biography. There is no narrative, no story-line, no characters (let alone character development). I doubt that without some knowledge of YSL's life one could follow the film. I even doubt that one would be interested in doing so. The actors are first class but given their abilities they are as wasted as was my time being bored for the 150 minutes of creeping, not running, time of Saint Laurent.
