In the wake of the moderate success of fashion films “Valentino The Last Emperor” and “The September Issue,” IFC Films announced that the company is acquiring the U.S. rights to Pierre Thorentton’s French documentary “Yves Saint Laurent: L’Amour Fou.”

“Upon Yves Saint Laurent’s death, his life companion Pierre Berge decided to sell their private art collection, a sale considered to be “the auction of the century.’ Each object and art piece seemed to tell a story about their personal lives. This film, filled with rare material archives and exclusive images of their homes, tells their story through this ‘auction’: a story of love, art and ethics.”

The film is scheduled for release by IFC In Theaters in 2011.
