REGELE MIHAI : DRUMUL SPRE CASA (2021)

 To mark the 2021 centenary of the late King Michael of Romania with a new 30-minute film “About Life.” Chainsaw Film Productions produce a short history documentary. The interview, which has never been broadcast, draws from the seminal 2003 interview with his Majesty conducted by John M. Florescu over two days at Elisabeta Palace. “About Life” also includes audio comments from an interview Mr. Florescu conducted with the Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Philip, at Buckingham Palace on October 20, 2016. The Prince, a cousin of King Michael, talks about their youth together on the Black Sea, at Peles Castle in the 1920s, and the exile years during Communism. The recording with the Duke of Edinburgh is believed to be the last interview he granted before retiring from public life in 2016.

MARIA : ROMANIA’S ENGLISH QUEEN (2018)

Romania’s English Queen tells the story of how Marie, the granddaughter of Queen Victoria, fought for Romania’s survival during the turbulent years of World War One. She dazzled the world’s leaders at the 1918 Paris Peace Conference and managed to double the size of her country. Her tale is one of political triumph and personal sorrow. She became the bride of Prince Ferdinand of Romania in 1893, at first she felt like an outsider at a faraway court. In the merciless war, the English Queen was reduced to eating beans while nursing Romanian devastated army. We know how she felt because she wrote it all down in a remarkable series of diaries and notebooks, including a romance with a dashing aristocrat. Throughout our film, Marie tells her own story in her own words.

King’s War (2016)

This is one of the last and greatest untold stories of the Second World War, revealed by the last surviving Chief of State, King Michael I of Romania. “We took the train to Berlin to see the other side of the coin and we had lunch with Hitler. It wasn ’t an enjoyable meeting.” It is the story of a King’s decision who, in a critical moment of the Second World War, relinquished Germany’s support, guiding Romania towards the Allies, thus bringing about a quicker end to the war. It is a story of palatial intrigues. And a story of deceptions. From Buckingham Palace to Bucharest. From Moscow to Washington. Lost diplomatic signals, aristocrat spies and blackmail at gun point. And the courage of a young king who dared. Romania, at the outbreak of the Second World War, was a very young nation, with an age of only 20 years.
