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.
For years in the early 1990s Michelle Pfeiffer was attached to her own Georgia O'Keefe project with her then production company Via Rose Productions. See more »
The movie makes a big point about O'Keefe painting the ladies lounge at Radio City Music Hall. In fact, she acquiesced to Steiglitz and turned down the contract and did no planning or actual painting on the project. See more »
Skin of a biography. Nothing spectacular. Invitation for knowledge, few pieces from a way to discover and define the world. Good cast and good story. But the final taste is not impressive. It is not a picture of Georgia's life but it has this ambition. It is not suggestion of ingredients of art but must be. It is not a poetry about lost beauties but the desire to be exist. It is a film about the fight of a woman. About the desert of days and fear to be only part of another existence. About limits of every Pygmalion work. And the nuances of love as song of deep refuges. May be an emotional step for public. Or a nice story. Or beginning of exploration in the universe of a great artist. For me - fragments of a ticket to lost adventure.
