The film, directed by Bruno Aveillan, tells the story of the ascent from a simple jeweler to European royalty to its modern-day status as a luxury brand. The film features many of Cartier’s memorable designs, such as the Tutti Frutti-style and the jewelry of the Maharajas. Renowned orchestrator Pierre Adenot composed the film’s original music and recorded it at Abbey Road studios. The production was completed in three months with a 60-man film crew.
“The panther in the film is the ultimate emblem of Cartier’s jewelry expertise and a symbol of strength and freedom,” said Emmanuel Perrin, president and CEO of Cartier North America. “Regal and charming, she is aware of the world around her and follows her instinct with a sharp emerald eye, ready to pounce and enjoy life to the fullest.”
L’Odyssee de Cartier screened the very first time at a special premiere hosted by Cartier at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, on February 29, 2012. The film also was presented in 15 cities worldwide, including Paris, Milan, Munich, Beijing, Seoul, Moscow, Dubai, and Rio de Janeiro.
