Paris 1880. At 40 years of age, Rodin at last receives his first public commission and creates his famous unfinished portal The Gates of Hell, a sculptural group work composed of many figures (some of these, such as Le Baiser and Le Penseur, will become his most famous pieces). It is at this time that he meets young Camille Claudel, his most talented student. She entices him with her youth, sensuality and artistic prowess. After ten years of passion, mutual admiration and complicity followed by a break up, Rodin relentlessly pursues his work. He has to cope with as much rejection as enthusiasm provoked by the sensuality of his sculptures.

Director Jacques Doillon explores the intertwined connection between the artist and his works. The film beautifully captures the essence of Rodin’s sculptures, transcribing the idea of movement and strong emotions that made the sculptor’s work world-famous.
