Storyline

Paris 1880, Auguste Rodin aged 40, finally receives his first State commission: he creates The Gates of Hell, composed of figurines. Some of these will become his most famous works, such as The Kiss and The Thinker.  He shares his life with Rose, his lifelong partner, when he meets the young Camille Claudel. His most gifted student, she quickly becomes his assistant, then his mistress. A decade of passion, mutual admiration and complicity ensues.  Following their break up, Rodin continues to work relentlessly. He faces both the rejection and enthusiasm provoked by the sensuality of his sculptures, and with his Balzac, rejected during his lifetime, creates the undeniable starting point of modern sculpture.

Jacques Doillon (born 15 March 1944) is a French film director. He has a habit of giving lead roles to inexperienced young actresses in his films on family life and women. Some actresses to break through are Fanny Bastien, Sandrine Bonnaire, Judith Godrèche, Marianne Denicourt and Charlotte Gainsbourg and Juliette Binoche. His 1989 film The 15 Year Old Girl was entered into the 16th Moscow International Film Festival. His 1990 film La vengeance d'une femme was entered into the 40th Berlin International Film Festival.The following year, his film Le Petit Criminel won an Honourable Mention at the 41st Berlin International Film Festival. In 1993, his film Le Jeune Werther won the Blue Angel Award at the 43rd Berlin International Film Festival. In 1998, his film Trop (peu) d'amour was entered into the 48th Berlin International Film Festival.
