★★★★ 'A powerhouse performance by Juliette Binoche provides the beating, tortured heart of this finely wrought and very affecting film.'
- Mark Kermode, Observer
Acclaimed director Bruno Dumont (Hors Satan, The Life of Jesus) teams up with the incomparable Juliette Binoche to explore three days in the life of troubled sculptor Camille Claudel.
In 1913 Claudel was sent by her family to a mental institution, where she remained until her death 30 years later. As much a film about the personal, philosophical and religious struggles of her brother, the poet Paul Claudel (Jean-Luc Vincent) – who had it in his power to release her – as it is a sensitive study of a tragically misunderstood and mistreated artist, Camille Claudel 1915 is a beautifully poised, elegant and superbly performed film about madness and the creative spirit in confinement.
Camille Claudel 1915, dir. Bruno Dumont, France 2013, 95 mins, cert. PG. French with English subtitles.
