Summary:An intimate fly-on-the-wall exploration of the singular world of one of Italy's most famous men and provides a first-time glimpse into Valentino's world of bygone glamour. The film documents the colorful and dramatic closing act of the fashion icon's celebrated career, tells the story of his extraordinary life and work, and also explores the larger themes affecting the fashion business today. But at the very heart of the film is the unique relationship between Valentino and his business partner and companion of 50 years, Giancarlo Giammetti. The resulting non-fiction film is a portrait of an extraordinary partnership - the longest running in fashion - and is a story about a master confronting the final act of his celebrated career.
