It’s the year of Yves Saint Laurent, with two films about the French fashion designer coming out this year. Fortunately, we’ve been given an exclusive to “Yves Saint Laurent,” which marks the directorial debut of actor Jalil Lespert.
The film looks at the burgeoning career of the young designer in the late 1950s. It also chronicles his relationship–both professional and romantic–with Pierre Berge. In the clip we see French actor Pierre Niney as a timid and bright Laurent. He’s at a press conference where he’s being questioned about his process.
