We originally had Bruno Dumont’s 7th feature film on last year’s Most Anticipated list (number 36 spot) when it was called La Créatrice. He has always worked with non-professionals or thesps that don’t have any star wattage – so it’ll be interesting to see how he handles and experienced thesp in Juliette Binoche.
Gist: 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.
Release Date: Berlin Film Festival showing then a release in France in the month of March. Expect a distribution deal announcement post festival for the U.S.
