Coming off his career high-point in L’Apollonide (Souvenirs de la maison close) aka House of Tolerance (which our Blake Williams placed high above his 2011 Best List (here is our interview with the filmmaker), Bertrand Bonello curiously decided to move towards biopic terrain for his sixth feature film and it just so happens embark on a non-battle of dueling portraits on the fashion guru.

Gist: The film will focus on the period running 1965 to 1976 when Yves Saint Laurent was at the peak of his powers, culminating with the 1976 Russian collection, considered by many as his most influential.

Release Date: An October 1st release date in place in France easily places the world premiere screening for Cannes.
