Camille Claudel Movie Review

I hadn't the foggiest idea who the title character was before popping in this DVD. In fact, I had Camille Claudel mixed up with Claudette Colbert. No matter, it's a quick jump into Claudel's backstory -- she was a French sculptress who tutored under Rodin, eventually surpassed his talents (from some accounts), became his mistress, was scorned, and went totally insane in the aftermath. Isabelle Adjani owns the movie as the title character, and Gérard Depardieu is excellent as the lecherous and slightly unhinged Rodin. Excellent direction and engaging storytelling, even if it does start to lose your interest in its third hour... No matter: You'll never look at the Louvre the same way again.
