Distributor IFC Films announced Wednesday that it has picked up L’amour fou, first-time director Pierre Thoretton’s documentary about couture designer Yves Saint Laurent’s relationship with his partner of 50 years Pierre Bergé, for a U.S. release next year. The film, which premiered at Cannes and later won the Fipresci International Critics Prize at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) last September, was produced by Kristina Larsen of Le Films du Lendemain and Hughes Charbonneau of Les Films de Pierre. Speaking with realscreen during TIFF, Thoretton said he was inspired to make a film about ‘love against all odds’ following a series of conversations he’d had with Bergé. Read the story here.
