a remarkable film about a remarkable artist, 5 February 2015
Author: lucy

This is a very interesting film! It tells the remarkable story of Rodin, France's great sculptor, and of his contribution to sculpture. Then it shows how his masterpiece THE GATES OF HELL was cast. I am so glad I watched it. I was especially interested in the use of vintage photographs showing the artist in his studio. And the explanation of why Rodin is held in such high esteem today. Then the saga of the casting: wow. What a complicated process that even today requires such technical know-how and expertise. Bravo to everyone who participated in making this new cast of the sculpture. And to this film for helping me to understand Rodin's importance and the difficulty of making art that outlives its creator. This is a remarkable film about a remarkable artist.
