In 2014, Pierre Niney brilliantly played Yves Saint Laurent in the biopic dedicated to the famous French designer. The feature film takes us to Paris in 1957 when the 21-year-old young man is called upon to take over the reins of the prestigious haute couture house founded by Christian Dior, who had just passed away. His first fashion show was triumphant and it was on this occasion that he crossed paths with Pierre Bergé. From this meeting a remarkable romantic and professional relationship was born. Yves Saint Laurent is preparing to revolutionize the world of fashion with a drastically modern and unique vision.

Exciting, the feature film invites us to discover Yves Saint Laurent as we have never seen him. Pierre Niney shines brightly in this film. So much so that he won the César for Best Actor in 2015. Yves Saint Laurent is available for purchase and rental on CANAL+ or Prime Video.

Before Fiasco, there was Five. Directed by Igor Gotesman, this comedy follows a group of friends who have always dreamed of living in a shared apartment. The opportunity presents itself but the rent is way too high… Fortunately, they can count on Samuel, who offers to pay half of the rent. The problem is that Samuel has just had an argument with his father, who no longer provides for his needs. For fear of disappointing, he decides not to admit his problems to his friends and starts dealing drugs to cover his share of the rent. But problems await him… No choice, Samuel will have to rely on his friends to get out of this bad situation.

Five is a particularly funny film, with its share of comical and hilarious situations. Pierre Niney is hilarious in the role of Samuel, but he is also very well accompanied. Hats off to François Civil and Igor Gotesman, who are equally funny. Five is a beautiful ode to friendship that promises a light evening. See you on Netflix.

20 years apart is a refreshing romantic comedy, even if it does not revolutionize the genre. It offers a good time and establishes itself as an essential film in Pierre Niney's filmography. Available on Netflix.

It is with Save or Perish that Pierre Niney's talent, if he needed it, is confirmed in our eyes. In this drama, the actor plays Franck, a Paris firefighter who sacrifices himself for his men.
