RODIN (N/C 15+)

 

At the age of 40 Auguste Rodin (portrayed by Vincent Lindon) at last receives his first state commission in 1880: The Gates of Hell, a sculptural group work composed of many figures, some of which would be the basis of free-standing sculptures that would later bring him fame, such as The Kiss and The Thinker. His pupil, assistant and, soon, his mistress is Camille Claudel (Izïa Higelin), an artist of no mean talent herself has to work in the shadow of the increasingly famous Rodin.  Ten years of passion ensue, but also of mutual admiration and complicity. After their break-up, Rodin relentlessly pursues his work, coping with the rejection and the enthusiasm provoked by the sensuality of his sculptures. Veteran writer-director Jacques Doillon provides fresh insights in to the artist’s life and work in the year of the centenary of his birth.
