With a stripped-down, bare-faced performance, Juliette Binoche is utterly wonderful in this tense French drama.

Observer [UK]

A powerhouse performance by Juliette Binoche provides the beating, tortured heart of this finely wrought and very affecting film about the later life of sculptor Camille Claudel.

This is a stark film, about the human condition at its most base and degraded.

This is a difficult film, but made with impressive formal rigour.

This later history of Claudel, which stars Juliette Binoche, is spare, harsh and minimalistic, as one would expect from Bruno Dumont.

Throughout it all, Binoche's face shivers with emotions that Claudel herself cannot pin down.

Binoche is excellent in a part that trades not on her beauty but her mind, portraying a woman whose talent made her dangerous in less enlightened times.

A luminous performance from Juliette Binoche is the star attraction in this intense and challenging historical drama.

It is a deeply sombre, deeply affecting film, based on real events, about the ordeal of Camille Claudel.

Financial Times

As non-plot becomes plot, so "shapelessness" finds its own shape. The film gathers mass, power and beauty as if unguided.

The film stops dead in its tracks with the introduction of stout Catholic brother Paul Claudel.

Little White Lies

Dumont's commitment to tone and aesthetics is remorseless - this was an injustice, and you will suffer accordingly for 94 minutes. But it's not just suffering for suffering's sake.

A measured, challenging historical drama but also one of Dumont's more accessible films.

Juliette Binoche gives a wonderful performance as Camille, conveying the intelligence, anxiety, anger and isolation of an artist abandoned by her family.

Juliette Binoche is brilliant, but the movie is a bit of a slog and its use of real mental patients as extras feels uncomfortably close to exploitation.

What emerges is a demanding but hypnotic, probing portrait of an artist denied her art, by a director in total command of his.

As meticulous as one of Claudel's sculptures, Hors Satan director Dumont and his star do this true-life story justice with an empathetic telling.

An eerie and austere film charting the nightmarish response of the French sculptress to her imprisonment in an asylum.

A deeply unsettling experience, a muffled cry from and for a woman cast aside by her family and by history.

Camille Claudel 1915 is a film of stark, sober rewards, and possibly Dumont's finest.
