Former cinematographer Bruno Nuytten`s directorial debut from 1988 which gained two Academy Award nominations in 1989, is based on the novel "Camille Claudel" by Reine-Marie Paris, grand-daughter of Camille Claudel`s brother Paul Claudel, which was adapted by Bruno Nuytten and Marylin Goldin. Isabelle Adjani won the Silver Berlin Bear at the 39th Berlin Film Festival in 1989 for her role in this film which tells the story about French sculptor Camille Claudel (1864-1943) and her relationship with impressionist sculptor Auguste Rodin (1840-1917) who became her teacher and lover during the early 19th century in Paris, France before the First World War.

With warm, colorful visuals, atmospheric music and detailed milieu depictions, this precisely filmed character-driven drama finely captures the era it portrays and the development of an historic figure who became a true artist. Isabelle Adjani`s interpretation of an ardent and self-disciplined young woman raised in a middle-class family who struggled with her art and with her love is remarkable, and so is Gérard Depardieu`s performance as the love of her life Auguste Rodin. Their acting is solely reason enough to see this interesting biographical period piece which centres on an unusually crafted love-story between two great artists.

Format: DVD
Full-blooded, thrilling, gruelling, brilliantly acted and filmed rollercoaster-ride through the life of the hugely controversial and mysterious Claudel. Adjani is sensational in the role of a lifetime (if not SEVERAL lifetimes!). The movie rushes at breathtaking speed and at a level of emotional intensity you rarely see in a movie without it becoming overwrought (it doesn't). Really this is such an underrated and unfairly neglected piece of work.

Certainly if you are at all interested in Claudel you should watch, even if only to cavill and disagree; if you dig French movies in general, it's a must; an Adjani or Depardieu fan? then why haven't you seen it yet?; an artist? few films examine the creative impulse as profoundly and uncompromisingly as this...
I didn't like all of it, didn't agree with all of its conclusions, but couldn't help but be knocked out by the sheer power of the whole.

A terrific Biopic, a terrific French movie, a terrific period movie, a terrific movie, PERIOD.

Isabelle Adjani and Gerard Depardieu once again live up to their 'Heavyweights of French Cinema' reputation in this drama, based on actual events. I was not expecting Rodin to be quite like Gerard Depardieu, but it definitely worked. The chemistry between Adjani and Depardieu was electric.

It was a true story of the long affair between Auguste Rodin and Camille Claudel. He was a celebrated and talented sculptor, and she was a sculptor in her own right and was also his student. They started an affair but she always wanted more, which he refused to give, and the consequence of that was her eventual insanity.

An emotional, brilliant film.

This is a film that reflects well mental and emotional obsessions that can make or destroy both the beautifull and beauty. The obsession with created images as well as the obsession with the images or sources of creation. The atmosphere and settings are totaly convincing and well researched. It's a good film for anyone interested in the difference between great art and artists and how destructive and ruthless that can be.

This is a film about passion and loyalty, focusing on Camille Claudel's true life, heartrending position on the wrong side of the equation. Those who know her lover, Rodin's, work, will appreciate the director's skill in replicating the sensuous, erotic quality of his scuptures in this beautiful film. As we watch a strong, magnificent creature destroyed by love, we question the nature of creativity, and more importantly, whether passion is of any worth at all.

My tutor suggested I watched this film. I thought that 3 hours of subtitles and a French language screenplay would be more than I could stand, well I couldn't be more wrong! It was amazing. The time flew, the subtitles became second nature and I was 'hooked'.

Brilliant interaction between Rodin and Claudel.

Certainly recommend to anyone who's interested in art, especially sculpture and the male/female divide, if it exists...

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This film is largely a tour de force performance by Juliette Binoche playing the film title's character, consigned to an asylum by her family after her failed relationship with Rodin the sculptor in the late 19th century led to her becoming a recluse. While Camille Claudel was in asylums for many years, the film's strength is to focus around three days in 1915 when her brother played by Jean Luc Vincent visited her.

Freely adapted from diaries, journals and medical records of Camille, her brother and the asylum's doctors, the film works based on its largely visual appeal and the use of real inmates from a lunatic asylum as extras and actors. Bruno Dumont the director admitted in an interview I read since seeing the film, that his luck was to find an asylum which let him both shoot there and felt the use of real inmates was a useful therapy for those inmates and whose families were willing to give the necessary permissions.

Shot largely in the barren Alps Cote D'Azur region, the rural asylum and surrounding countryside provide the perfect backdrop as the emotions of Camille play out in anticipation of the visit by her brother and its outcome. Binoche in nearly every scene by nuance and facial expressions shows the torment and anguish the real Camille must have gone through as her artistic talents get worn down by the mood of the asylum and her interaction with the nuns and medical staff who run it and the inmates, when as the lead doctor admits she should not be there.

The arrival of her mystic poet brother who she hopes will obtain her release falls away as one realises that he is the one who is insane and should be in the asylum but retains control over her and the doctors by having the money to do so.

One of those films the French in particular do so well, where not a lot happens action wise but by the end one feels like you have undergone a gruelling journey of revelation on the strength of the human spirit.
