Winter, 1915. Confined by her family to an asylum in the South of France - where she will never sculpt again - the chronicle of Camille Claudel's reclusive life, as she waits for a visit from her brother, Paul Claudel.
During WWII a group of Jewish children is sent to a castle outside Paris to hide there until things cool down, but it eventually becomes their new home. Later, children from the liberated concentration camps arrive there as well.
i enjoyed this movie very much, both for its acting depth & its dramatization. however, some scences were edited too quickly & not developed. what i am confused about is the absolute ending! if the movie had ended with the main character looking at the countryside as the pickup truck drives away, one may conclude a certain awakening from her spiral. however, the last scene shows agnes @ a cosmetic table? in her bedroom? partially dressed? looking at who? a very unsatisfying ending to a beautifully told movie & one that clearly tells a very moving story that only the french appear able to do!!!
