Camille Claudel 1915 by Bruno Dumont (France, 2013, 97 min.). Juliette Binoche delivers a commanding performance as Camille Claudel, a gifted turn-of-the-century sculptress, whose long affair with Auguste Rodin drove her to a psychiatric hospital. Dumont’s trademark long takes and close-ups give the film a meditative quality. It’s clear Camille doesn’t belong in the confines of an asylum, but the film’s real tragedy is watching Camille’s creativity and talent wither away as the chance of regaining her freedom diminishes.
