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

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

June 20, 2014
This later history of Claudel, which stars Juliette Binoche, is spare, harsh and minimalistic, as one would expect from Bruno Dumont.
June 20, 2014
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.

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

June 19, 2014
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.

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.

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

June 16, 2014
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.

June 16, 2014
What emerges is a demanding but hypnotic, probing portrait of an artist denied her art, by a director in total command of his.

June 16, 2014
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.

March 19, 2014
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.
