Camille Claudel, 1915 Reviews

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

A worthy film of such glacial pacing that it unfortunately borders on the soporific.

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.

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.

Juliette Binoche's face, as we know, can tell a million stories in a simple and brief rearrangement of her facial muscles.

Film Journal International

Despite beautiful cinematography and Juliette Binoche in the title role, Bruno Dumont's biopic is a dull fictionalized depiction of three days of the eponymous sculptor's 30-year confinement.

Despite its austere beauty, elegant triptych-like structure and faultlessly disciplined performances, "Camille Claudel 1915" still raises more questions than it answers ...

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

By the end, you are left with a feeling of helplessness, rage, and a kind of abstracted bafflement. How did this happen?

Camille Claudel, 1915 is as ascetic and austere as anything [Bruno Dumont's] done, and definitely not for everyone.

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.

Strong feminist interpretation to tragic thwarted creativity. . .Binoche fiercely embodies extraordinary woman working to act normal surrounded by abnormal and [no] freedom.

Mesmerizing and heartbreaking with a brave, raw and convincingly moving performance by Juliette Binoche.

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

Equal parts character-study and social commentary, Dumont's film weighs the soul and promise of an artist who was sold down the river by her mentor and by her family members.

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

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

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

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