YVES SAINT LAU­RENT (M)

The Advertiser - SA Weekend - - MOVIE REVIEWS -

They say clothes maketh the man. But what of the man who maketh the clothes? That’s one ques­tion that won’t be an­swered by a dis­ap­point­ingly su­per­flu­ous biopic of the late French de­sign icon Yves Saint Lau­rent. Fashionist­as will feel par­tic­u­larly ag­grieved – few scenes de­pict the cou­turier in the vicin­ity of dresses to die for. As for how Saint Lau­rent ac­quired his rare talent, well, the film doesn’t let you in on that se­cret, ei­ther. Cu­ri­ously, the best mo­ments hap­pen while Saint Lau­rent is still in the em­ploy of the House of Dior, and yet to start his own fa­mous la­bel. Stars Pierre Niney.
