L'AMOUR FOU recounts the love story between Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Berge, a glamorous tale of infatuation (and sometimes torment) beginning in 1958, and culminating in a French civil partnership shortly before the designer's passing in 2008.

Official selection of the Toronto and TriBeCa Film Festivals 2011, L'AMOUR FOU is a unique film event for fans of documentary film and fashion die-hards alike.
