Storyline

This feature-doc tells the epic story of the Faberge name, from Imperial Russia until the present-day, spanning one hundred and fifty years of turbulent history, romance, artistic development and commercial exploitation. From the bejewel led Easter eggs of the Romanov Tsarinas to the 1970s allure of 'Brut by Faberge' aftershave, and from the Russian revolution to today's high-fashion glitz in New York and London, the film explores a multi-faceted world that began with one man: the prodigiously talented Peter Carl Faberge, Court Jeweler of St Petersburg. Shot at locations across Russia, Europe and USA (including the collection of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II), the film features interview contributions from the world's foremost Faberge authorities, as well as personal reminiscences from Faberge family members.

Faberge doc of fantastic quality
27 April 2015 | by See all my reviews

Fantastic doc, huge research done by a very talented team

A must see for anybody interested in Faberge and the creative process. Also a very interesting historical doc on Russian history combining information on the Russian revolution on one hand and the history of Faberge on the other hand. At times it made for uncomfortable viewing as you saw the lives of the Romanov family in stark contrast to the lives of average Russsian The Faberge craftsmanship was and is exceptional which was very well highlighted by thoughtful interviews and lovely close ups of the Faberge object d'art. It was also fascinating to see how the 'new' Faberge was trying to keep the flame alive with I think great success I highly recommend this doc.
