Camille Claudel 1915

Regie Bruno Dumont
Frankreich, 2013

Darum geht's

Winter, 1915. Dies ist die Chronik des abgeschiedenen Lebens von Camille Claudel, die von ihrer Familie in ein Spital in Südfrankreich abgeschoben wurde, wo sie ihre bildhauerische Tätigkeit verlor. Hier wartet sie auf einen Besuch von ihrem Bruder, Paul Claudel.

Darum sehenswert

Bevor er uns mit seinem unerwarteten komödiantischen Naturtalent überraschte, wurde Dumont für seine radikal raue Vision menschlicher Tragödien gelobt. Wie in diesem kraftvollen, bewegendes Porträt einer gepeinigten Künstlerin. Mit dabei: Die bezaubernde Juliette Binoche.

Camille Claudel 1915 Regie Bruno Dumont
[Binoche] gives a monumental performance here, not least because it’s so contained. The moments of protest and anguish are all the more moving and painful because the Camille we mostly see is an observer, with impassive, barely changing features—gazing calmly ahead, or turning to the camera with an implacable, borderline-haughty look… Camille Claudel 1915 is a film of stark, sober rewards, and possibly Dumont’s finest.

Watching Binoche’s every flicker of confusion, anger, remorse, and hope, we are made privy to a succession of emotions that transcend time and place. This is more a film about acting—both the historical necessity of women to constantly play roles for audiences real and perceived, and about our experience of watching a major contemporary screen actor inhabit a character forced to play those roles—than about linear historical events.

When compared to the opening scene of Ulrich Seidl’s Paradise: Love in which a group of children with Down’s Syndrome are shown riding bumper cars, Dumont’s approach becomes all the more laudable. Seidl lets himself off easy by implying that if the viewer laughs, then it’s due to his or her own moral failings. In Camille Claudel 1915, no such subterfuge is necessary, as there isn’t ever the slightest trace of ridicule, abjection or even cheap compassion, but only pure and inexorable humanity.
