4.0 out of 5 stars CLASSIC TRUFFAUT, 20 Aug 2014
A marvellous film covering the adolescence of Antoine from the mixed up life with his mother and her husband, a school where he does not fit in and the streets of Paris that offer him so much more excitement. Through the film he has this desire to reach the sea and through a series of protracted events and trouble with the police he achieves his goal. If you are into French films a must see!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Biopic, 20 Aug 2014
I enjoyed this film about the life of Yves Saint Laurent, and the pitfalls being a genius with a mental issue can have. Well told, great acting from the ensemble cast, and I am presuming the costumes were based on original YSL designs. If I have a draw back it was the glossing over of what was a devoted partnership with Pierre Berge who was obviously more than a business partner. A film I am happy to recommend.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too Long, 16 Aug 2014
The film is too long covering the failure of a movie director to have a relationship that can last. Stark to look at but the action is stifled at times stretching scenes for the sake of it without adding anything extra to the plot, experience of the film. The acting is good and the dance sequences are exquisitely choreographed!
