Filmed over the course of three years, this portrait of fashion colossus Yves Saint Laurentâs final show was suppressed right after its first and only public screening at the 2007 Berlin Film Festival. The film was blocked by YSLâs business (and on-and-off romantic) partner Pierre Berge, who objected to the couturierâs portrayal as frail and not quite all there, and to his own depiction of being the behind the scenes mastermind. (The dynamic between the two is said to have inspired Paul Thomas Andersonâs depiction of Daniel Day-Lewis and Lesley Manvilleâs characters in Phantom Thread.) Fortunately, Berge relented in 2015 (he died in 2017), and thus Celebration is finally available. Director Olivier Meyrouâs Celebration presents an opulent and immersive behind-the-scenes look at haute couture designer Yves Saint Laurentâs final show and is a priceless addition to our understanding of the man, the myth, la marque, that is Yves Saint Laurent.
