Valentino: The Last Emperor

Far from being a film solely for fashion lovers, this is an intriguing, multi-layered personality study that provides an exciting and eye-opening look behind the curtain of a distinctive industry. Filmed over a pivotal two year period in the designer's life, the film follows Valentino Garavani's bittersweet decision to retire and the dramatic sale of his business to a private equity firm. It also retrospectively revisits his extraordinary life and work - one of the longest and most successful runs in fashion history. Touching, funny, glamourous and insightful; this is an unprecedented warts-and-all look at a master confronting the final act of his celebrated career.
