French Film Festival: “Camille Claudel 1915”
The film traces just three days of Claudel’s grim life at the Montdevergues mental asylum near Avignon, where she had been committed by her family. The producer potently conveys Claudel’s abject state—her irrational fear that she may be poisoned, her increasing agitation over the fact that she was incarcerated against her will. French with English subtitles.
