Shows Camille Claudel, a protégé and mistress of Auguste Rodin, in 1915 when she was imprisoned in an insane asylum. Camille was also the sister of the Christian mystic poet Paul Claudel, the last of her family to pay her regular visits. Inspired by the correspondence between Paul and Camille, the movie focuses on Camille 's struggle to maintain a sense of normalcy in a crowd of schizophrenics. Suffering from bouts of paranoia, she focuses on her art and her family as pillars of sanity, until those too begin to crumble.

Don't confuse this film with the 1988 film by Bruno Nuytten. "Camille Claudel 1915" deals with a point in Claudel's middle age when she is confronting the perceived injustice of being interned in a mental facility against her consent. It's a very quiet film with a moving performance by Binoche, but it won't appeal to those who like action and dialogue. It's a touching, lamentable story.

claustrophobia - like being confined in an asylum in real-time with Camille. excellent, raw performance by Binoche.

Winter, 1915. Confined by her family to an asylum in the South of France - where she will never sculpt again - the chronicle of Camille Claudel's reclusive life, as she waits for a visit from her brother, Paul Claudel.

Plutôt ennuyeux, pour ne pas dire prétentieux.
