News & Interviews for Camille Claudel, 1915
Critic Reviews for Camille Claudel, 1915
Juliette Binoche gives a wonderful performance as Camille, conveying the intelligence, anxiety, anger and isolation of an artist abandoned by her family.
Despite its austere beauty, elegant triptych-like structure and faultlessly disciplined performances, "Camille Claudel 1915" still raises more questions than it answers ...
Juliette Binoche, as Claudel, is occasionally touching, but as soon as interest flares, the movie suffocates it via endless takes of her suffering through daily chores.
Whatever nuance the movie has, it owes to Binoche's performance; despite the material and visual context, she's able to convey a sense of contradiction and inner life.
By the end, you are left with a feeling of helplessness, rage, and a kind of abstracted bafflement. How did this happen?
Audience Reviews for Camille Claudel, 1915
"Camille Claudel 1915" has a couple of great things going for it, like an excellent performance from Juliette Binoche in the title role of a woman who was at one time a lover and protege of Rodin and a sculptor in her own right, and a valid point about the state of mental health a hundred years ago, allowing a woman to be trapped in an asylum for decades against her will. That's especially hard to take considering she is much healthier than her fellow inmates and her brother Paul(Jean-Luc Vincent) has delusions of his own. But that's pretty much it and nowhere near enough, as Bruno Dumont does little more with the source material of letters and medical records than to simply transcribe them. Look, I know he has never made easy films to understand but at least in the past he has tried to challenge the audience instead of making a tedious movie like this one.
