Camille Claudel 1915 is the first Dumont film I would truly consider boring. Everything it works so hard to convince us of, we have heard so many times before.
June 19, 2014
The film stops dead in its tracks with the introduction of stout Catholic brother Paul Claudel.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
September 6, 2013
A worthy film of such glacial pacing that it unfortunately borders on the soporific.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
October 18, 2013
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.

October 16, 2013
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.

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.

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

October 15, 2013
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.
November 22, 2013
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.

October 16, 2013
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
June 19, 2014
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 9/10
October 16, 2013
Mesmerizing and heartbreaking with a brave, raw and convincingly moving performance by Juliette Binoche.
Full Review | Original Score: 9.21/10
March 19, 2014
A deeply unsettling experience, a muffled cry from and for a woman cast aside by her family and by history.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10
October 24, 2013
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.
Full Review | Original Score: B+
June 17, 2014
A measured, challenging historical drama but also one of Dumont's more accessible films.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
June 19, 2014
A luminous performance from Juliette Binoche is the star attraction in this intense and challenging historical drama.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
June 19, 2014
As non-plot becomes plot, so "shapelessness" finds its own shape. The film gathers mass, power and beauty as if unguided.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
