The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
Despite its name, L'Amour Fou, a documentary about the late fashion genius Yves Saint Laurent and his partner Pierre Bergé, is not entirely a love story. Really, it's a story of loneliness and loss. Full Review
Barbara Goslawski
Boxoffice Magazine
Akin to a stroll through a gallery, L'amour Fou is meditative and magically eye-opening. Full Review
Betsy Sharkey
Los Angeles Times
The documentary is fascinating as a museum piece with Berge serving as docent. Full Review
Carrie Rickey
Philadelphia Inquirer
While Pierre Thoretton's film boasts vivid archival footage of some YSL couture collections, Bergé's lugubrious tone renders everything black. Full Review
Dennis Harvey
Variety
Shy on the celebrity-gawking (and celebrity input) that marks many fashion documentaries, and neither gossipy nor an objective appreciation of his impact and legacy, picture is a successful portrait on its own terms, save one: It's unlikely to excite much theatrical interest. Full Review
