Carl Fabergé documentary to be broadcast in St. Petersburg September 29, 2014 This Sunday, October 5, at 6:00 PM at the "Angleterre Cinema Lounge" (Malaya Morskaya street, 24, St. Petersburg), you'll be able to watch the movie "Fabergé: A Life of its Own" — a feature length documentary tracing the story of the House of Fabergé, from Carl Fabergé in 1880s St. Petersburg to the present day. It is a glittering story filled with jeweled objects and spectacular craftsmanship, but it also encompasses elements of romance, tragedy, greed, and pure kitsch. From the Bolshevik Revolution and the cold-blooded slaughter of the Imperial Romanov family to the appearance of a mass-market scent called 'Brut by Fabergé', and from star-crossed lovers to James Bond, the Fabergé name has indeed acquired "a life of its own."
