April 1, 2014
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.
February 6, 2014
Camille Claudel 1915 is a film of stark, sober rewards, and possibly Dumont's finest.
January 30, 2014
The camera stays on [Binoche] for long periods, and we become complicit in her suffering. It's a great performance in a movie that is difficult to watch.

At some point during the making of "Camille Claudel 1915," writer-director Bruno Dumont surely must have considered featuring Juliette Binoche's face in extreme close-up for the film's entire running time.
January 2, 2014
A genuine, and riveting, star turn.
December 24, 2013
Although nothing really happens throughout the 93-minute run time, the emotional conflicts that envelop the character of Camille kept me wondering, too - why is she there?
December 19, 2013
Binoche makes the tragedy palpable.
November 14, 2013
It's a film about entrapment, whether by an incompetent, unforgiving bureaucracy or something bigger.
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.
October 24, 2013
Art and madness have always coexisted, but Camille Claudel, 1915 is about what happens when you take away the art and stifle a troubled, extraordinary mind.
October 19, 2013
A touching, and sad, piece of history and a brilliant performance by Juliette Binoche.
October 18, 2013
Strong feminist interpretation to tragic thwarted creativity. . .Binoche fiercely embodies extraordinary woman working to act normal surrounded by abnormal and [no] freedom.
October 17, 2013
Camille Claudel, 1915 is as ascetic and austere as anything [Bruno Dumont's] done, and definitely not for everyone.
October 16, 2013
It seems like a departure, but soon turns into a Bruno Dumont film-and one of his most rigorous and powerful at that.
October 16, 2013
Mesmerizing and heartbreaking with a brave, raw and convincingly moving performance by Juliette Binoche.
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.
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?
October 15, 2013
One of the year's thorniest releases.
October 15, 2013
Ms. Binoche's portrayal of Camille is one of the most wrenching performances she has given.
