Directed by Olivier Meyrou (France, 2007, 73 min.). In French with English subtitles.

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