Juliette Binoche gives a mesmerizing performance as Auguste Rodin's protégé and sister of the Christian poet Paul Claudel. Inspired by the correspondence between Paul and Camille, the film focuses on Camille Claudel's struggle to find understanding and recognition as an artist moments before her brother's visit during her 29-year confinement in a mental institution. Shot in a real psychiatric asylum, Bruno Dumont brings together a supporting cast comprised of real-life patients and their actual nurses that, alongside Binoche, create an emotionally intense ensemble and a rare cinematic experience.
