Yves Saint Laurent: 5 Avenue Marceau
In French with English Subtitles Documentary by David teboul, 1h25 min, 2003,
with Yves Saint-Laurent, Pierre Bergé, Catherine Deneuve.
A 60 days 'huis clos' in the famous house of haute couture.
In this companion piece to his biographical profile Yves Saint Laurent- Time Regained, filmmaker David Teboul peers behind the doors of one of the world's leading fashion houses. As he prepared his last women's collection in 2001, St. Laurent allowed cameras to observe the evolution of his vision for the first time. During roughly eight weeks, St. Laurent's simple black-and-white drawings are transformed through many iterations into glorious, colorful reality. A rare and revealingly intimate glimpse of the creative process in action. – Sundance Festival 2003 “Engrossing and illuminating.”-Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Time “This is a tender and engaging portrait of a marvelously elusive personality, whose style remains timeless.” Leslie Camhi, Village Voice
