The Romance- a French Fashion doll video

With all the hubaloo of the Barbie club meeting, and all of the goodies I've received, I didn't have time to post about the video /DVD I had ordered from 
the Carmel Doll Shop   .

It is entitled 'The Romance- The Life of Lillian Dal Monte' A charming tale of music, Achievement and love, told through 19th century dolls . Narrated by Delia Green.

It was originally a presentation created in 1997 for the United Federation of Doll clubs Annual convention and enjoyed by them. Since then, it has been revamped and upgraded with more stills and scenes added. It is a wonderful video using reproduction and antique dolls- Jumeau, Bru, Gaultier and a wide variety of miniatures and props and dioramas. 



The video runs about 40 minutes and can be ordered from the above link for 29.95 with shipping included from the Carmel doll shop. They also have other UFDC presentation videos for the same price. 

Here are some stills from the video-





The video is astounding and well worth the money, so if you have a bunch of friends who are into doll videos, and the like, this would be great eye candy. It is narrated from the dolls' point of view, as if she is telling it from her point of view, set in the Napoleonic empire period or at the Civil war era. The sets are museum quality. I have enjoyed mine about 3 times and never tire of watching it.  Highly recommend!

LOVE this movie. Lillian and her Sister are so believable that I got tears at the end. Such a beautifully done film. :)
