    The film makes distant what surely should be vital and alive.

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

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

    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 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 »
