    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.

    Bruno Dumont's latest film, CAMILLE CLAUDEL 1915, has none of his usual shock value but with total astute subtlety, Dumont creates a breathtaking and quite frightening world where one loses all control over one's life. Juliette Binoche is once again astounding playing a woman trapped in her own mind but perhaps most terrifying, isolated and restrained in an asylum by a world that simply will not understand her. The Claudel of this film is restrained and a true victim of the world around her. Dependent on others for her freedom and sanity, CAMILLE CLAUDEL 1915, depicts a person becoming more insane by the hands of others. It is a film that shakes you to the core in loneliness and oblivion. Full Review »
